Luby’s shooting took place on the 16th of October 1991 at Luby’s Cafeteria in Killeen, Texas. It was National Boss’s Day, a day meant for the celebration of achievements. However, that day was severely marred by a man named George Hennard, and the lives of the families of more than 20 victims were changed forever.
35-year-old George Hennard’s drove a Ford Ranger pickup truck through the plate-glass front window of the Cafeteria to the east of the cafeteria’s entrance. He ran over a table of diners and continued to drive forward into another before coming to a stop. At first, onlookers and patrons thought the crash was an accident. One of the patrons of the cafeteria, Tommy Vaughn had braced himself to help the driver from the truck.
