State health department statistics show that around 11 shooting deaths in a year isn't extraordinary -- it's certainly a lot fewer than the 26 in 2002.

This one isn't included in the total count, since it took place on New Year's Eve, 2012. According to Phoenix police, Ortiz's sister, 19-year-old Savannah Ramirez, accidentally shot and killed Ortiz while they were posing for photos together, with a gun to Ortiz's head.
