On April 20, 1999, a school shooting and attempted bombing occurred at Columbine High School in Columbine Colorado, United States.
The perpetrators, 12th grade students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, murdered 12 students and 1 teacher. 10 students were killed in the school library, where Harris and Klebold subsequently committed suicide.
21 additional people were injured by gunshots, and gunfire was also exchanged with the police. Another three people were injured trying to escape. At the time, it was the deadliest high school shooting in US history.
The shooting has inspired dozens of copycat killings, dubbed the Columbine effect, including many deadlier shootings across the world.
The word "Columbine" has become a byword for school shootings.
Part 1 we go into the lives of the two leading up to the day and also the start of the attack killing students and injuring many.
With school going back in session, we wanted to bring attention to anti-bullying. Please be kind and accepting of other people differences. We are all just trying to get through life as best as we can.
