On April 20, 1999, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 12 students and a teacher at Columbine High School before turning their guns on themselves. Another 23 students were wounded. It is believed the timing of the Columbine attack was supposed to coincide with the Oklahoma City bombing anniversary, or possibly Adolf Hitler’s birthday, which is also April 20.
