July 1 1993: Gian Luigi Ferri rampaged through the Pettit and Martin Law offices in San Francisco killing eight and wounding six then turned the gun on himself July 1, 1993,  101 California Street Shooting was a mass shooting that took place July 1, 1993, in San FranciscoCalifornia, killing nine people, including the shooter, Gian Luigi Ferri. The killings sparked a number of legal and legislative actions that were precursors to theViolent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act.   55-year-old failed entrepreneur[1] Gian Luigi Ferri entered an office building at 101 California Street in San Francisco, to the offices of the law firm of Pettit & Martin on the 34th floor. Ferri's reason for targeting the firm is unknown; it had advised him about some real estate deals in the Midwest in 1981, but had no contact with him ever since. Ferri donned ear protectors and opened fire with a pair of TEC-9 submachine handgun and a Norinco NP44 (copy of Colt M1911 pistol) with deadly hollow point Black Talon and standard ammunition, and used Hellfire trigger systems for the TEC-9 pistols. After roaming the 34th floor, he moved down one floor through an internal staircase and continued shooting. The attack continued on several floors before Ferri committed suicide as San Francisco Police closed in. Eight people were killed in the attack, and six others injured.[2]  The reason for the shootings was never determined. A typed letter left behind by Ferri contained a list of complaints.  Ferri claimed he had been poisoned by monosodium glutamate (MSG), a flavor enhancer in food, and that he had been "raped" by Pettit & Martin and other firms. The letter also contained complaints against the Food and Drug Administration, the legal profession (which he claimed gave "allegiance to the monarchy"), and a list of over 30 "criminals, rapists, racketeeres [sic], lobbyists", none of whom were among his actual victims.[4] Subsequent reports claimed that Ferri's issues related to a conference he had at a law firm on the 35th floor, and targeted Pettit & Martin by mistake.

July 23, 1993 Assassination of Michael Jordan's Father Staged As Bungled Carjacking Robbery James R. Jordan Sr. while returning home from a funeral in a distinctive new Lexus car pulled over to take a nap when  Daniel Andre Green and Larry Martin Demery spotted the car. They shot Jordan to death while he slept in his car, then stole the vehicle.  Green and Demery claimed they only realized that Jordan Sr. was the father of Michael Jordan after going through items in the car and stole what they found including two NBA championship rings given to Jordan Sr. by his son. Calls carelessly made from Jordan's cell phone resulted in their immediately capture. Their cover story was that they had planned only to tie up their victim and that Green pulled the trigger for no reason, which implies their true reason was they knew their target and had had planned to murder him. Both were convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for this and other violent crimes  The victim's body was only found on August 3 in a swamp in Bennettsville, South Carolina, and because it was extremely decomposed, it was not positively identified until August 13 with the help of dental records. Alternative theory: Nothing indicates the real motive was terrorist attack on American sports hero family.  Is it possible the two killers were targeting father of sports star as terror attack staged as botched robbery?
