On May 9, 2003, Biswanath Halder, an immigrant from India and alumnus of Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), went on a shooting spree, killing one student, Norman Wallace, and wounding a professor and a Ph.D. student at the Weatherhead School of Management at CWRU in Cleveland, Ohio. Halder held off police and SWAT officers for over seven hours in sniper-like gun battles, while approximately 100 people hid in offices and closets until they were rescued by police. Halder was ultimately apprehended by a SWAT team in a fifth floor classroom closet. In 2006, Dateline NBC aired a report on the incident, which featured video footage of the shooting, interviews with family members of Halder and Wallace, and discussions about Halder's motive. He was later sentenced to life in prison.
