1973: A week after shooting and killing two police officers in an attack on the New Orleans Police Department, former U.S. Navy dental technician Mark Essex fatally shoots another seven people and wounds eight more at a Howard Johnson's Hotel. Using a military helicopter and snipers on nearby buildings, police were later able to shoot and kill Essex, who had taken cover in a concrete cubicle on top of the hotel's roof.
