“Brenda Spencer”
she was a school shooter who used a 22 caliber sniper rifle her dad gave her in christmas. She was 16 years old when she committed the school shooting.

She shot a lot of students from her home when kids were going to school at 8:30 in the morning. She injured 8 kids and 1 police officer and killed the school principal and the janitor.

More than a 100 police officers and 20 patrols reached the school within minutes after the first shot. The police were able to call brenda on the phone. She told the police that she had been brinking and taking barbiturates.

When the police asked her why she did it, she just answered “i don't like mondays”. The boomtown rats made a song called “i don't like mondays” The song was telling the story about Brenda Spencer and the school shooting. Today she is still in prison.
