It marked the sixth school shooting incident in the U.S. since Jan. 1 that has either left students wounded or killed, according to the advocacy website Everytown for Gun Safety, which has logged or counted 290 school shootings since 2013.

There have been 18 overall school-related shootings this year, but most of those didn’t lead to mass injuries or deaths, and in some cases involved bullets fired elsewhere striking school property.

The most recent school mass shooting happened at Marshall County High School in Kentucky, Jan. 23, when a 15-year-old student opened fire, killing two and injuring 17 others.

Other prominent school shootings in the United States:

December 2012: Adam Lanza, 20, gunned down 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., before killing himself.

February 2008: Shooter Steven Kazmierczak, 27, enters a lecture hall at Northern Illinois University, and kills five students and wounds 18 others before taking his own life.

April 2007: Seung Hui Cho, a 23-year-old student, went on a shooting spree at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Va., killing 32 people, before killing himself. It was the deadliest school shooting in U.S. history.

October 2006: Milk truck driver Charles C. Roberts, 32, enters a one-room Amish schoolhouse in Nickel Mines, Pa., and isolates the female students in the classroom before methodically executing them. He kills five girls and wounds several more. Roberts then commits suicide.

March 2005: Sixteen-year-old Jeff Weise killed his grandfather and a companion of his grandfather’s, then headed to a high school on the Red Lake Indian Reservation in Minnesota. He killed five students, a teacher and a security guard before taking his own life.

April 1999: Students Eric Harris, 18, and Dylan Klebold, 17, opened fire at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo. They killed 12 students and one teacher and wounded more than 20 others before killing themselves in the school’s library.

August 1966: Charles Joseph Whitman, a former U.S. Marine, shot and killed 16 people from a university tower at the University of Texas in Austin before being shot by police.

The deadliest school massacre in U.S. history didn’t involve guns.

On May 18, 1927, a bomb destroyed the Bath Consolidated School in Bath, Michigan. Forty-four people, including 38 students, were killed. The bomb was planted by a local school board member.


President Trump plans to meet with Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto, the White House said Thursday, providing face-to-face talks between neighbors with tense relations over trade and immigration.

The White House did not set a date but said the meeting would occur in the “near future” and the arrangements were underway.

The arrangements began Thursday when a Mexico delegation met with U.S. counterparts at the White House, said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

“Both delegations look forward to arranging a meeting, in the near future, which will provide President Donald J. Trump and President Enrique Peña Nieto with an opportunity to review the progress that has been made and to discuss various open issues to advance relations between the United States and Mexico,” Ms. Sanders said.

The delegations met as the U.S. Senate rejected as series of bills intended to address illegal immigration, border security and the fate of “Dreamers” who illegally entered the U.S. when they were minors.

Trump y Peña Nieto buscan acordar un encuentro: Casa Blanca

La fuente señaló que ambas delegaciones esperan aterrizar una reunión en “un futuro próximo” para discutir diversos temas

El presidente de Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, y su homólogo de México, Enrique Peña Nieto, trabajan para acordar fecha para una reunión, informó este jueves una fuente de la Casa Blanca.

“Las dos delegaciones esperan acordar un encuentro en un futuro próximo”, dijo la fuente, quien añadió que la reunión ofrecería una oportunidad para que los dos mandatarios discutan “varios temas en abierto”.

Trump ha amenazado alejar a Estados Unidos de un acuerdo comercial con México y Canadá y prometió construir un muro en su frontera sur, después de haber sugerido que los inmigrantes mexicanos eran violadores y personas violentas.

Sin embargo, el presidente estadounidense bajó los decibeles de su retórica en meses recientes, por temor de que un discurso más agresivo termine por fortalecer la candidatura de Andrés Manuel López Obrador para las elecciones presidenciales de julio próximo.

Peña Nieto y Trump se reunieron una vez como presidentes. Antes de las elecciones presidenciales de noviembre de 2016 en Estados Unidos, Trump llegó a realizar una controvertida visita a México para un encuentro con el dirigente mexicano
