The Monash University Shooting True Blue Crime

    • True Crime

21st of October 2002. Monash University, Clayton, Victoria.

After the class of 12 had filed in and taken their seats, lecturer Lee Gordon-Brown handed back an assignment that students had recently completed, and began the class with a discussion, writing a question on the whiteboard for everyone to ponder.

Around 20 minutes into the class at 11:25AM, things took a sudden and horrific turn inside room E659 of the Menzies Building.
Allen, seated at the rear of the classroom, jumped up with both of his arms outstretched and screamed at the top of his lungs 'you never understand me...'

Join Shaun and Chloe as they discuss the tragic tale of the Monash University Shooting.
