'Targeted violence' against schools preventable: Secret Service report


Giles Clarke/Getty Images, FILE Over 750,000 people gathered on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC to protest lawmakers and politicians for change in gun laws, on March 24, 2018.

Targeted violence against schools is preventable, if the warning signs are identified, according to a new report by the Secret Service released Tuesday.

The report by the Secret Service's National Threat Assessment Center studied 67 thwarted school violence plots and 100 plotters to come up with a framework to further prevent school attacks.

The agency found that there were several consistent factors in attacks that were prevented and attacks that happened, such as a history of discipline or law enforcement interaction, if the plotter had experienced bullying or had underlying mental health issues, intended to commit suicide or had been impacted by childhood conditions.
