In 1996, Barry Loukaitis dressed up in his best Wild West cowboy garb and sauntered into his Algebra class in Moses Lake, Washington. While his classmates may have thought him more than a bit dorky for his choice of attire that day, what they didn’t know was that hidden beneath the fabric of the duster he was wearing were two pistols, a rifle, and 78 rounds of ammunition. He opened fire right then and there, his first victim being 14-year-old Manuel Vela. Seconds later, another classmate was hit with a shot to the chest, followed by the teacher with a shot to the back. Next was a 13-year-old girl, shot in the arm. He began taking hostages, but made the tactical mistake of allowing people to collect the wounded. In that moment of weakness, an enraged teacher rushed the boy, taking him down and ending the spree. Later, a classmate would recall Loukaitis saying that it would be “fun” to go on a killing spree someday.
