Gulf War veteran Michael Lansberry was shot dead by a 12-year-old student who had pictures of the Columbine killers in his pocket at the time of the fatal shooting.

Mr. Lansberry was murdered at Sparks Middle School where he taught math. The gunman, who was enrolled at the middle school, also shot two 12-year-old classmates before he committed suicide. This horrific episode of workplace and school violence occurred on October 21, 2013.

A 19-year-old former student researched Columbine before shooting three faculty members and 14 students dead (pictured below) and wounding 17 others.

The mass murder transpired within the Freshman Building at Marjory Stoneman Douglas HIgh School in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018.
