- 16-year-old Brenda Spencer’s answer as to why she shot up an elementary school in 1979.
Spencer, who is one of only three female school shooters, used a .22 calibre semi-automatic rifle to shoot 11 people. Eight children and a police officer were severely injured, while the principal and a custodian were killed. After the shooting, she locked herself in her house and telephoned a journalist whom interviewed her over the phone. He then passed the call onto police negotiators, who she told “I’ll come out shooting!” After a few hours, Spencer ended up surrendering.
Tried as an adult, Spencer pleaded guilty to two counts of murder and assault with a deadly weapon. She remains incarcerated.
Just wanted to point out that (like @hufflepuffpanda said in her post, his heart eyes are on) BUT ALSO LOOK AT HIM, HE NODDED!!!!!!! If Adam wasn’t there, he would have totally said something like ‘‘yeah, she really is’‘ and Kristen would have figured it all out (you know that he is incredibly in love with Amy)
Favorite Friendship Moment: I always believed that, somehow, Sharon and Brenda have been, to one another, the closest thing to a best friend they could have. Make it for their work or their individual personalities, it wasn’t something they could say to each other, but this moment is the description of my thought. The most improbable of Brenda’s enemies became her strongest supporter. And a friend, somehow.
