Apocalypse Then: Santana High School shooting

On this day, in 2001, Charles Andrew "Andy" Williams entered Santana High School, shot and killed two students and injured thirteen.

He is currently serving 50 years to life in prison. He is 23 years old.

Williams felt he was targeted for physical and emotional bullying in school, and after his arrest, he told investigators that he was fed up with being treated that way.

He was apparently a Linkin Park fan, and the song off of their album, Hybrid Theory, called One Step Closer, was blamed by the media for the shooting.

Chester Bennington of Linkin Park stated that, "Like everybody else, we are extremely saddened by these events and our hearts go out to the families and friends of the victims."

As regards their being blamed for the shooting, he said,"You might as well say it's because he ate mayonnaise that day. There's not enough attention paid to the problems of sensitive young men in our society."
