There may be three types of markers on the map:

  • Small orange markers show confirmed gunfire calls where no one was hurt
  • Large black markers show shootings where someone was wounded
  • Large red markers indicate fatal shootings

When police are unable to find a victim, they generally consider a gunfire report to have been confirmed when they find other evidence at the scene, such as bullet casings or property damage.
