Official summary

The Hungerford massacre was a series of random shootings in Hungerford, England, on 19 August 1987, when Michael Robert Ryan, an unemployed antique dealer and handyman, fatally shot sixteen people, including a police officer, before shooting himself. The shootings, committed using a handgun and two semi-automatic rifles, occurred at several locations, including a school he had once attended. Fifteen other people were also shot but survived. No firm motive for the killings has ever been established, although one psychologist has theorised Ryan's motive for the massacre had been a form of "anger and contempt for the ordinary life" around him, which he himself was not a tangible part of.

Memorial for the 30 year anniversary

Visit at Hungerford for the 30th by fakeologist MarkyMark:



  • The Firearms (Amendment) Act 1988 was passed in the wake of the incident, which bans the ownership of semi-automatic centre-fire rifles and restricts the use of shotguns with a capacity of more than three cartridges. The shootings remain one of the deadliest firearms incidents in British history.
  • The Hungerford massacre inspired Christopher Priest's novel The Extremes (1998).
