    Wilkes-Barre Shootings

    Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, U.S.
    Saturday Sep 25, 1982

    The 1982 Wilkes-Barre Shootings was a spree killing in the United States carried out by George Emil Banks. A former Camp Hill prison guard, Banks shot 13 people to death on September 25, 1982 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and Jenkins Township, including seven children – five being his own – their mothers, some of their relatives, and one bystander. His attorneys argued for the insanity defense, but, following a trial before jurors from Allegheny County and presided over by Luzerne County Common Pleas judge Patrick J. Toole Jr., Banks was convicted of 12 counts of first-degree murder and sentenced to death.
