On July 18, 1984, a lone gunman James Oliver Huberty entered a crowded McDonald’s with a plan: “hunting for humans.”
He opened fire on the customers inside the fast-food chain, killing 21 and wounding 19 others.
Upon entering the restaurant with several guns, including a 9mm automatic pistol and a semiautomatic rifle, Huberty demanded everyone get on the floor.
He then began shooting the patrons point-blank.
The assailant’s youngest fatal victims were an 8-month-old baby, a 9-year-old little girl, and three 11-year-old boys.
Huberty was killed after an employee managed to escape the restaurant and inform the SWAT team that he was alone and without hostages.
Police fired a shot through his chest, fatally wounding him.
