Columbine School Shooting took place on April 20, 1999. That means today is the 10th anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre. It’s tragic how the date of the shooting fell on 420. I celebrate 420 every day at 4.20pm and there is only one day of the year when 420 can be celebrated whole day. Sadly, this day also marks one of the darkest days in US history. Forever known as the Columbine School Shooting, April 20, 1999 took entire America and the rest of the world by the storm after Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold – two Columbine High School students unleashed merciless massacre, killing 13 people (victims include 12 students, 1 teacher), wounding 23, then committing suicide. One more quick note about 420 – aside form being the Columbine school shooting anniversary day, April 20th is also the birthday of Adolf Hitler (born April 20, 1889).
Only a few of the Columbine Crime Scene Photos out of thousands taken by Sherriff’s people made it out. They are still frowned upon as they are the reminder of the deadliest high school massacre in US history (fourth deadliest overall school massacre). Even now, 10 years since Columbine School Shooting took place there are more questions than answers. Why did they do it? Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were just a couple of high school students who didn’t seem any different from other students. Their graduation was only two weeks away when they embarked on Columbine School Shooting.
According to videos and journal writings, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were planning the massacre in great detail. Their plan contained such perks as an attempt bombing that would rival Oklahoma City one, there were also plans to hijack an aircraft from the Denver airport, fly it to New York and crash into a building (yes, that was prior to 9/11). There was obviously a lot going on in the background with Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, just nobody seemed to have picked up any signs and take action while they could. Next thing you know, 15 people are dead as result of Columbine School Shooting.
Below is the video with footage from the Columbine High School security cameras showing events that took place in the cafeteria during Columbine School Shooting. Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold are highlighted in the video. The audio tracks contains some of the 911 calls from people who were in the school at time of shooting.
And below here is the gallery with Columbine Crime Scene Photos. It contains photos of Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold dead in the library after their simultaneous suicide and a photo of dead Daniel Rohrbough with students hiding behind a car in presence of a police officer who’s aiming his gun at the school. I didn’t include Columbine Crime Scene Photos that just show stressed students running out of the school or the famous photo of Patrick Ireland falling out of the library window as he’s being caught by SWAT team.
