NEW YORK — An average of one death can occur every 5 to 15 seconds during an active shooter situation, according to statistics from the Alice Training Institute.

In the latest incident, three people, including a 6-year-old boy, were fatally shot when a gunman opened fire at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California Sunday evening.
