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, most notably Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold.

Causes

  • Bullying (peer victimization, peer pressure, cyber bullying), which can cause depression and personality disorders
  • Revenge against teachers for punishing the shooter unfairly
  • Being expelled from the school
  • Mental illness (sometimes without cause)
