  • On Tuesday, 5 April 1994, Flemming Nielsen of Silkeborg (age 35) shot four people, two of them fatally, at Aarhus University in Denmark. Nielsen had been a student at the university since 1986. He opened fire with a sawed-off shotgun in a university cafeteria where he killed his first victim, 24-year-old Birgit Bohn Wolfsen. The remaining students in the room managed to escape. Nielsen proceeded into another cafeteria and opened fire again, killing his second victim, 27-year-old Randi Thode Kristensen. Another two people were wounded but survived. Flemming Nielsen then retreated to a basement bathroom stall where he shot himself to death. The autopsy revealed that he had taken Fontex before the incident, and police found a suicide note at his home, stating how he couldn't handle life anymore, and that he wanted to kill some people before ending his own life.
