Nylon is invented, the "M*A*S*H" finale draws a record audience, Michael Jackson wins a record eight Grammys, the Gulf War ends, and the Branch Davidian standoff begins, all on this day.
1997: In what will become known as the North Hollywood shootout, two heavily armed and armored bank robbers and Los Angeles police officers fire more than 2,000 rounds of ammunition following a robbery of a Bank of America branch. Both suspects, Larry Phillips Jr. and Emil Matasareanu, were killed in the shootout and 11 police officers and seven civilians were injured.
