Case 219 is a 2010 American Drama film starring Evan Ross, Leven Rambin, and Taylor Nichols, and Harold Perrineau. The film was written and directed by James Bruce and is based on the Walter Dean Myers novel Shooter.


Seventeen-year-old Leonard Grey (Brett Davern) went on a high school shooting rampage killing one student and injuring scores more before turning the gun on himself. Using documentary style interviews Case 219 examines the interconnected relationships between the shooter, his friends, their tormentors at school, and their parents. The film unfolds through the eyes of a Los Angeles Times journalist researching a story for the tenth anniversary of this tragedy and in watching the interviews we discover the reporters own shocking secret.



The film has been screened at seven different film festivals during April.[1]
