(born November 14, 1974) Wayne Lo was responsible for one of the first highly publicized school shootings of the 1990s.
Lo is infamous for the "Sick of It All" t-shirt he wore during the spree and the band Weezer wrote a song about him
entitled "Lullaby for Wayne."
In 1991, Lo was accepted by Simon's Rock College of Bard in Great Barrington, Massachusetts and given the W.E.B.
DuBois minority scholarship. Lo did not adjust well to the liberal college environment and on December 14, 1992,
Lo carried out a shooting rampage. That morning he received an ammunition order that he had placed two days
earlier. He then went to Pittsfield, MA and purchased an SKS at a gun shop that afternoon. Lo commenced
shooting at around 10:30 pm., killing two people and wounding four others. Lo surrendered to the police after his
rifle jammed and he called 911, informing them that he was the shooter.
He was arrested and during his trial, Lo's psychiatrists testified he was suffering from schizophrenia while the
prosecution expert psychiatrist witnesses merely attributed Lo's actions to his narcissistic personality disorder.
He was found guilty of 17 counts and was sentenced to two consecutive life without possibility of parole terms
plus 19-20 years. He was immediately sent to the maximum security prison at Walpole, MA on February 3, 1994
and was later transferred to MCI-Norfolk, a medium security prison where he remains today.
In 1999, Gregory Gibson, the father of Galen Gibson (one of Lo's victims), wrote and published Gone Boy -- A
Walkabout, a detailed book recounting the shooting and Gibson's search for answers in his son's death. The book
spurred correspondence between Gibson and Lo.
Wayne donates all of the proceeds from his art sales
to Gregory Gibson and the Galen Gibson fund.
