Apocalypse Then: Columbine High School Massacre

This is the big one. It’s probably the most widely known and documented school shooting in history, even above the Virginia Tech Massacre, which resulted in more deaths, which occurred a few days ago, on the 16th. On April 20 1999, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 13 people and injured 24 at Columbine High School before each taking their own lives.

Harris and Klebold were unpopular and frequent targets of bullying at their high school, described as outcasts.

The media blamed video games as Harris and Klebold were reportedly avid players of games like Wolf 3D, Doom, and Quake.

Other people said that Luvox, the drug that Harris was taking, was to blame seeing as he had abruptly stopped taking it and that it could lead to aggressiveness.

An official report suggested that Harris was a clinical psychopath and Klebold was a depressive. Investigators reached these conclusions after going through their personal belongings like journals, and believe that their mental illnesses may have been the underlying cause for the shooting.
