||39-year-old Gregory Velasquez drops by the Red Caboose Day Care in Madison, WI, brandishing two meat cleavers. After stabbing the day-care teacher several times, he is shot eight times in the chest by two police officers. Judging from comments he had made to his girlfriend (a lock of whose hair he had torn out a week before) his death is ruled suicide by police.
