Remembering the night

"A shooting is not an individual and his immediate family, it’s our entire community that is affected."


This week on Need to Know we return to the scene of a school shooting that occurred just over twenty years ago in Great Barrington, Massachusettes.

On December 14, 1992, student Wayne Lo began shooting at random on the campus of Bard College at Simon’s Rock, ultimately wounding four and killing two: fellow student, Galen Gibson, 18, and professor Ñacuñán Sáez, 37.

In this web exclusive video, we meet Simon’s Rock faculty who share their memories of Sáez as a brilliant professor and joyful colleague, whose laughter they can still hear “in peals” — even after all these years.
