Mass shootings driven by "media contagion": Study

<p>People who commit mass shootings in America tend to share three traits: rampant depression, social isolation, and pathological narcissism, according to a paper presented at the American Psychological Association’s annual convention that calls on the media to deny such shooters the fame they seek. “Mass shootings are on the rise and so is media coverage of them,” said Jennifer B. Johnston of Western New Mexico University. “At this point, can we determine which came first? Is the relationship merely unidirectional: More shootings lead to more coverage? Or is it possible that more coverage leads to more shootings?”</p>
