Mapping Child Gun Deaths

This is the most depressing map of the week. The #NotAnAccident Index map plots the locations of child related gun accidents and deaths in the USA so far in 2015.

So far there has been at least 80 child shootings in 2015, where a person aged 17 or under has unintentionally killed or injured someone with a gun. If you select a marker on the map you can read details about the incident in the map side-panel, including the type of weapon involved and the location where the incident took place.

The data is also available beneath the map in the form of a table.
