Charles Whitman killed 16 people and injured 31 on August 1, 1966. His shooting rampage was done from the University Tower on the University of Texas campus in Austin.

A lone gunman killed five police officers and wounded seven others in Dallas, Texas in July, 2016. It was the deadliest single day for police officers since 9/11.
