10 Of The Most Violent Shootouts In History

Winnenden School Shooting

Occurring on March 11th, 2009, the Winnenden School Shooting was the brain-child of 17-year-old Tim Kretschmer, who loaded a 9mm Beretta semi-automatic pistol and shot 16 civilians to death, and then committed suicide on scene.

The Norco Bank Robbery

On May 9, 1980, five armed men took over Norco, a California Security Bank, where they took charge of $20,000. Unfortunately, they were spotted by a teller across the road who called the police. Armed with assault rifles, handguns, shotguns, pipe bombs, and hollow-point ammunition, the five men fired upon local police. Deputy Glyn Bolasky suffered injuries to his face, forearms, left elbow, and left shoulder. The five shot down a helicopter, killed an officer, injured two more, and destroyed 33 police cruisers in a chase.
