Columbine High School massacre: School shooting at Columbine High School in Columbine, Colorado, United States on April 20, 1999
The Columbine High School massacre was a school shooting and attempted bombing that occurred on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School in Columbine, Colorado, United States. The perpetrators, twelfth grade (senior) students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, murdered 12 students and one teacher, all of which were killed by gunfire. Ten students were killed in the library, where the pair subsequently committed suicide. At the time, it was the deadliest shooting at a school in United States history, not surpassed until 2012 by the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, where 28 people died. The crime has inspired several copycats, and "Columbine" has become a byword for a school shooting.
