Long Description:
"At 2:57 p.m. on July 1, 1993, 55-year-old businessman Gian Luigi Ferri entered an office building at 101 California Street in San Francisco, and made his way to the 34th floor and the offices of the law firm of Pettit & Martin. Once inside, Ferri, who apparently had been interviewed by lawyers at the firm the day before and who had been involved in a failed business deal, opened fire with a pair of TEC-9 handguns and a .45 pistol, then moved down one floor and continued shooting, before eventually shooting himself. Eight people were killed in the attack, and six others injured.

The reason for the shootings was never fully determined, but a letter left behind by Ferri claimed a long list of complaints."
