Since 31 people were killed earlier this month in two mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, police say at least 30 individuals have been detained on threats of mass shootings.
Of those arrested, more than half of the threats were made against schools, universities or hospitals. While not all of the threats involved social media, its presence in the majority of these incidents raises concern about the contagion effect of mass shootings through social media.
