Prelude to a High School Shooting (5:08) -- Teenager With a Gun (5:37) -- High School Shooting (2:39) -- Community Response to Shooting (1:45) -- Signs of Teenage Depression (6:53)When Warren's girlfriend breaks up with him in a particularly cruel manner, he buys a gun and exacts his bloody revenge at the school dance.

A radio show, which features a psychologist and one of the survivors, frames the tragic story, providing insights into the warning signs of impending violence and how such an incident could perhaps be prevented in real life. The mounting pressures on Warren are also examined, along with the behavior of those around him, including his teachers, parents, siblings, and friends.
