Resources to Help Families, Community Members Cope After a Mass Shooting

The federal government’s Interagency Working Group on Youth Programs recently compiled a list of resources to help children, families, educators and community members cope after mass shootings.

During Highland Park's Fourth of July parade on Monday, a gunman shot into the crowd, killing six people and injuring at least dozens of others. After an eight-hour manhunt, authorities took the suspect into custody.
