An extensive study by the Miami Herald on guns in local schools made some surprising discoveries.

Examining reports of gun-related incidents at Miami-Dade public schools since 2009, the newspaper found that nearly half of the guns confiscated came from the same six schools.

Yet despite their high rate of guns found on school grounds, there were no reported incidents of shootings.

When shootings do occur in Miami schools, they often involve accidental gunfire.

In May, a Redlands middle-schooler was shot in the leg after another student's gun accidently fired as he dropped his book bag.

And in November 2012, a teen was killed on a school bus when another teen was showing off his firearm to his classmates.
