Psychology Major Leo Kelly set off several Molotov Cocktails into the hallway of Bursley Residence Hall at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, setting off the fire alarm. He then took a sawed-off shotgun from his room, and began firing shots at fleeing residents. Freshman Edward Siwik and resident advisor Douglas McGreaham would ultimately die from gunshot wounds. Kelly was found guilty on two murder counts, and was sentenced to life in prison.
