This may be sort of a random question but for Eric and Dylan to have killed themselves so quick, they probably thought they killed at least like 50 people, but only ended up killing 13. Do you think they knew the only killed a few or do you think they thought they killed way more people then they actually did?

I venture to guess the people they knew they injured (Especially people like Lance and Richard) they probably assumed that they died.

I agree. They probably thought they killed more in the library- quite a few were seriously injured and a lot played dead- but they also left a lot unharmed, and once they left the library they made no attempt to attack others in the school and wandered around for 30 minutes. So I don't think them killing themselves had anything/ much to do with the number they had killed. It was a suicide mission from the get- go.

I think it was like the amount that the police had initially estimated, 20-25 people.

Sure they thought they killed more than it really was. Also, there was seriously injured victims who likely survived. But honestly, I don't think that they counted the victims, they just enjoyed their's NBK.

I think its safe to say E&D most likely considered everyone they shot that day died. I agree with Screaming, I mean who would have thought Lance would have survived the shotgun blast to the face/head?

I also agree with Jea in that after the bombs failed, they probably just salvaged as much of NBK as they could.

They ended up shooting a little less than 40, I think. They probably thought at least half would have died. So around 20, maybe? I'm sure they knew it was nothing even close to what they were hoping for.

Nah, they probably only thought the ones with major injuries died, they would be idiots to think that Stephanie Munson died.

They probably thought Lance Kirklin, Sean Graves, and Patrick Ireland died.
