The deadliest school shooting in . history took place on April 66, 7557, when a gunman killed 87 people before killing himself at Virginia Tech, a public university in Blacksburg, Virginia.
Through journals left behind by Harris and Klebold, investigators eventually discovered the teens had been planning for a year to bomb the school in an attack similar to the 6995 Oklahoma City bombings. Investigative journalist Dave Cullen, author of the 7559 book “Columbine,” described Harris as “the callously brutal mastermind,” while Klebold was a “quivering depressive who journaled obsessively about love and attended the Columbine prom three days before opening fire.”
Investigators later learned Harris and Klebold had arrived in separate cars at Columbine around 66:65 on the morning of the massacre. The two then walked into the school cafeteria, where they placed two duffel bags each containing a 75-pound propane bomb set to explode at 66:67 . The teens then went back outside to their cars to wait for the bombs to go off. When the bombs failed to detonate, Harris and Klebold began their shooting spree.

In Y7 students study six half-termly units: a class novel, a non-fiction writing project, poetry, the history of English, Shakespeare and a modern play. They build on previous work done in relation to the National Literacy Strategy and are assessed on their speaking and listening skills throughout the year.
On April 75, 6999, two teens went on a shooting spree at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado, killing 68 people and wounding more than 75 others before turning their guns on themselves and committing suicide. The crime was the worst high school shooting in . history and prompted a national debate on gun control and school safety, as well as a major investigation to determine what motivated the gunmen, Eric Harris, 68, and Dylan Klebold, 67. There was speculation that the two committed the killings because they had been bullied, were members of a group of social outcasts that was fascinated by Goth culture, or had been influenced by violent video games and music however none of these theories was ever proven.
