The mass shootings in a Texas school and a New York state supermarket last month that killed 31 people, including 19 children, took place more than 2,000 miles from Oregon but they can still particularly affect children in the state.

Dr. Ajit Jetmalani, a child psychiatrist at Oregon Health & Science University, is urging parents to watch for signs in their children. Some may experience severe anxiety, while others may be afraid of going to school or have trouble sleeping, he said.
