Gun Violence Kills 8 Percent of Children Living in Urban Areas

Bullet wounds kill 8 percent of children taken to emergency rooms in urban areas, says a recent report. Researchers from the Oregon Health & Science University found that gun violence kills children more than car accidents and that it is the leading cause for surgery and blood transfusion. They also found that most of the victims were between the ages 15-19 and 85 percent were male.
