February 2, 1996 - “This sure beats the hell out of algebra, doesn’t it?” 14-year-old Barry Loukaitis enters his Frontier Junior High School algebra class armed with a .22 revolver, .25 semiautomatic pistol, and 30/30 lever-action rifle with 3 belts of ammo and more strapped to his chest. He then shot students Manuel Vela, Arnold Fritz, and Natalie Hintz. Teacher Leona Cairnes was shot in the back. Another teacher, Jonathan Lane, entered the room and attempted to calm the situation, allowed to help a few out of the room. Loukaitis organized the students in the back of the class as police talked to him through the door. He then instructed Lane to put the end of the rifle in his mouth, covered with a black plastic bag. Lane grabbed the gun and pushed Loukaitis against the wall, restraining him as the students escaped and police entered to make an arrest.
