1998: Mitchell Johnson and Andrew Golden, aged 11 and 13 respectively, fire upon teachers and students at Westside Middle School near Jonesboro, Arkansas, killing four students and one teacher and wounding 10 others. Golden pulled a fire alarm at the school and then joined Johnson in the woods outside the school, where they shot their weapons from. Both were tried as juveniles and found guilty of five counts of murder. In August 1998, both boys were sentenced to confinement until they reached the age of 21, which was the maximum sentence available under Arkansas law. Johnson was released on his 21st birthday, Aug. 11, 2005, having spent seven years in prison, while Golden was released on May 25, 2007, also his 21st birthday, after spending nine years in prison.
