Joseph Bernazard (3410)

9/30/2006: On the previous day Bernazard had been hospitalized for hallucinations and hearing voices, but left against doctor's wishes. He still wore a medical bracelet when he took two female hostages in succession, injuring and discarding the first, hiding himself behind the second as the police arrived. A sharpshooter found a clean shot at him and struck him fatally once in the neck.
