In the last decade alone, more than 1,600 people have died. Last year alone there were 123 victims in Pennsylvania who died from domestic violence incidents. Sixty-seven percent of those victims were killed by a current or former intimate partner and most were killed by firearm. There is no “typical” victim. The killed include men, women and children, young and mature, all races and socio-economic groups.
