On May 21, local time, according to the ABC report, there have been frequent shootings in the United States in recent years, and the proportion of teenage deaths due to shooting has risen sharply.

  In the United States, 1,247 teens between the ages of 12 and 17 will be shot dead in 2021, and 3,381 teens will be gunned down, according to the U.S. nonprofit Archives of Gun Violence.

So far in 2022, 487 teens in the same age group have been shot and 1,248 have been shot.

Data released this month by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirms that fact, showing that in 2020, gun homicides across the U.S. increased by 35 percent to a 25-year high, with 10- to 24-year-olds Gun homicides have increased by nearly 40 percent.

  The increase in shooting violence may be attributable to social and economic pressures brought on by the pandemic, which have exacerbated long-standing inequalities between communities and fostered more hatred, the study noted.
