There's also the theory that if the media gives a lot of attention to one shooting it can trigger another one shortly after. (See Charlie Brooker's "Newswipe").
It's natural that area in general is sensitive to any kind of incident, but at same time it breeds culture of fear, especially given large scale automated reaction. How many similar incidents occur every day? It's similar to how airplane disasters come in bunches. For a week after a major airplane crash, there is a ton of media attention, it seems that every day another plane has an accident, while it's just media paying close attention to everyday incidents.
