Investigating the Applicability of the Near-Repeat Spatio-Temporal Phenomenon to Shot(s) Fired Incidents: A City-Level Analysis

Research on the near-repeat phenomenon has generally focused on the dates incidents occurred. Not much is known about how these patterns differ by the time of day; i.e. how they differ by day and night. This study examines the extent to which near-repeat patterns identified in shot(s) fired incidents differ by day and night.
