1993 Aurora Shooting

28 May

On December 14, 1993, four employees were shot and killed and a fifth employee was seriously injured at a Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant in Aurora, Colorado. The perpetrator, 19-year-old Nathan Dunlap, a former employee of the restaurant, was frustrated about being fired from working at the restaurant five months prior to the shooting and sought revenge by committing the attack. He fled the scene of the shooting with stolen cash and restaurant items.

He was found guilty of four counts of first-degree murder, attempted murder, and other charges, and was sentenced to death in 1996.[1] A judge initially set an execution date for him in August 2013, but Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper signed a temporary reprieve that would postpone Dunlap’s execution date.
