School shootings occur when students, especially those who are bullied or other lone gunman take firearms to a particular school and begin shooting people indiscriminately.

This act is especially common in the united states, but it can occur in other places as well. It manifests as a kid simply shooting a person in revenge to large scale school bombings and mass shootings.

After shooting up a school, the killer often commits suicide, although some surrendered to police.Also, suicidal school shooters typically made martyrdom videos, usually explaining their act and ranting about bullies.

84% of school shooters were motivated by being the victims of bullying. The most notable school shooters are Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, witch created the famous Columbine Massacre in 1999.
