As we all know, Deputy Neil Gardner exchanged gunfire with Eric Harris before Eric went into the school. Let's pretend one of Gardner's bullets hit Harris, either killing him or preventing him for doing any more damage. What would have happened with Dylan?


I think Dylan would have freaked out and probably killed himself soon after realizing he was alone, what do you think?

Dylan probably would have went into an empty classroom or bathroom and killed himself. I do not see him carrying out the massacre alone.

I agree that Dylan, more than likely, would have just killed himself.

I agree. He wanted to die and wouldn't have surrendered but wouldn't have continued killing either.

What would have happened if Dylan had been wounded?

That's interesting too. Actually it's more interesting, I think there is a much bigger chance that Eric would continue by himself.

Eric definitely would have continued, he may have still been more uncomfortable without Dylan though. Might not have entered such an open and populated space as the library without Dylan. Witnesses reported that they were in constant verbal contact telling each other to 'cover me.'

If Dylan had been wounded, Eric would have continued on without him. As Brooks said, and I actually agree with him, Eric was acting as though he was in the military during the massacre. And in the military, if one of your own is killed, you still continue on. I believe that is what Eric would have done. Eric was the one who actually started shooting and began the massacre and then Dylan followed. I don't believe Eric would have had any problems shooting without Dylan. In fact, he had the shootout with Gardner while Dylan was off somewhere else.

Very likely Dylan would have exchanged fire for a little bit, and killed himself right on the spot before being able to do much of anything else.

Let's imagine a further scenario.

Eric is hit and wounded but still alive and communicating with Dylan, just immobilized.

Or:

Dylan is hit and and wounded but still alive and communicating with Eric.

They mutually agree to end it together there?

I guess the one able to move would have gone to try and make the bombs go off whilst the one hit stayed put and fired at anything that moved.

I think most people underestimate Dylan. I think he would have carried on with or without Eric. Granted, I don't think he would have killed as many people as he did with Eric. I believe he would have continued on throughout the school shooting at random students and teachers as they ran away. I don't think he would have entered a heavily populated area like the library alone. He probably would have kept firing until he felt like he was cornered or low on ammo, then turned the gun on himself. Even though Dylan was very suicidal, I believe he wanted to hurt as many people as he could before he did kill himself. I don't think Eric's death would have stopped him from doing that. Eric and Dylan both knew they were going to die that day, they were prepare for that. They knew they could be killed by cops, but they were ready to go out in a hail of bullets regardless. With the amount of preparation and planning they did, I wouldn't be surprised if they had discussed what to do if when of them were killed ahead of schedule. They had a mutual goal. Kill Mankind. And stopping never appeared to be an option, so I doubt either one of them would have given up if Gardner had hit one of them.

Hard to say. If Eric was killed... I think Dylan would contnue the firefgth with Gardner and then perhaps go on with teh shooting. I tink he would be confused, perhaps taing more time to do anything than they did in reality.

I think Dylan would go on to try to detonat the bomb. I'm not sure if he would go to the library, or at least go there soo soon and kill so many people. Hard to say. He wasteh one who let one guy go, Eric did not.

Both wanted to kill and both woudl regardless if the other was shot. How son would they shake of the effec of seign the other dieis a different matter. IMHO Dylan was mroe ready to die than Eric. Eric was more read to see his firnd die than vice versa tho.
