That was the day the engineering student at the University of Austin rode the elevator to the top of the 30 story university tower armed with seven firearms and a foot locker filled with ammunition, food, and supplies. His "reverse siege" of the campus and surrounding area lasted 96 minutes, during which he shot 56 persons, 14 fatally. When the murders of his wife and mother, plus the death of a victim in 2001 from wounds sustained that day are included, the total horror was 17 killed and 31 wounded. It was the first of what has become a sorry and sorrowful chain of similar events - campus mass shootings - in the United States.
