On February 2, 1996, the  Frontier Middle School was devastated by a  hostage-taking incident and  shooting spree that occurred in an algebra  class. It took the lives of  three people (two students and a teacher)  and resulted in the critical  injury of one student. The person accused  was a 14-year-old boy named Barry Dale Loukaitis, who was experiencing  delusional and messianic thoughts before the  shooting. Barry was dressed  to look like a gunslinger from the Wild  West in a black duster, and  armed with a .30-30 caliber rifle, a .357  caliber pistol and a .25  caliber pistol that belonged to his father.  The students were held  hostage for 10 minutes before a gym coach  tricked and outwitted the boy.
It was believed that, aside from a history of mental illness and   dysfunctional issues in his family, Barry was influenced by Pearl Jam’s   song and video “Jeremy.” The video shows a troubled youth committing   suicide in front of his classmates and teacher. It was also reported   that he said “This sure beats algebra, doesn’t it?” when he saw   his classmates panic. This is a quote from a Stephen King novel, Rage,   in which the protagonist kills two teachers and takes his algebra  class  hostage. Barry is currently serving two life sentences, with an   additional 205 years in prison.
