Gunfire sent hundreds of kids and parents scattering at a flag football game in northern Virginia last Sunday morning. Many took shelter behind trees and bushes near the field.

The incident came on the heels of two other shootings that struck panic at youth sporting events this week. Researchers say the gunfire is indicative of heightened gun violence in the U.S. – and record levels of shootings at sporting events on school grounds.
