Specific Targets of Mass Shootings That Survived Empty
PostSubject: Specific Targets of Mass Shootings That Survived   Specific Targets of Mass Shootings That Survived Icon_minitimeWed Apr 11, 2018 5:59 am

After researching a number of mass shootings, I've noticed a trend where those that were specifically targeted survived. Examples of specific targets that survived include Chun Mal-soon (Uiryeong Massacre 1982), Con Margelis (Queen Street Massacre 1987), Robert Bisig (Zug Massacre 2001), and Gabrielle Giffords (Tucson Shooting 2011). It's as if the ill-will towards them kept them safe.

Are there any other examples of survivors that were specifically targeted?

Tracy Murphy, Arapahoe High School shooting. If I recall correctly he didn't even encounter Karl Pierson (the shooter) during the shooting, however Karl had came there specifically looking for Murphy and shouted "Where the fuck is Murphy?" while looking for him.

3 taxi drivers that Derrick Bird shot at were injured but survived, he also couldn't find another man he wanted to shoot dead.

Laura Black was one of Richard Farley's main targets but survived despite being wounded.

Farley intended for Black to survive “Did you find out if Laura’s doing okay?… I hope she’s doing good. She can’t regret it if she doesn’t live."

Breivik intended to kill Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland

Pat Sherill (most likely) intended to kill one of the supervisors who reprimanded him the day prior.

Robert Steinhäuser intended to kill Headmistress Christiane Alt.

You mean former prime minister? Stoltenberg was the Norweigen PM in 2011

I wonder who among Eric and Dylan's "shit lists" survived.

Do mass shooters who planned to kill themselves but ran out of bullets count?

Not really, just other people they couldn't locate.
