America's first library opens, a plane crash kills most of the Marshall University football team, Princess Anne marries a commoner, and Michael Jackson premieres his "Black or White" video, all on this day.
1991: Thomas McIlvane kills four people with a Ruger 10/22 rifle in the Royal Oak, Michigan, post office after being fired from the Postal Service for "insubordination." He then shot and killed himself. The shooting was one in a series of incidents from 1983 onward in which U.S. Postal Service workers went on a shooting rampage, giving birth to the term "going postal." McIlvane is seen here in an earlier mug shot from when he was charged with making threats over the telephone.
