California: San Ysidro McDonald's Massacre
Killed: 21 + Shooter; Injured: 19

On July 18, 1984, James Oliver Huberty (pictured), a former undertaker, used a 9mm Uzi semi-automatic submachine gun, as well as a Winchester 12-gauge shotgun and a 9mm handgun to mow down a predominantly Mexican and Mexican-American crowd of people eating at a McDonald's restaurant in San Ysidro. The massacre, which lasted for over an hour, ended when Huberty was shot down by a SWAT team sniper. A monument (pictured) to those who lost their lives that day was erected in place of the McDonald's, which was demolished.
