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 semiautomatic rifle, Huberty demanded everyone get on the floor. He then began shooting the patrons point blank.
The assailant’s youngest fatal victims was 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.
