39 years ago He Didn't Have a Gun

24-year-old double murderer Ronnie Gardner attempts to escape during trial proceedings for the Otterstrom murder in Metropolitan Hall of Justice, 400 South 300 East, Salt Lake City, Utah, United States.

Gardner was immediately shot in the chest by guard Luther Hensley. After running to the courtroom archives, Gardner confronted attorneys Robert Macri and Michael Burdell and shot them both. Gardner made his way outside the building, where he was surrounded by dozens of police officers. Gardner threw the gun away, dropped and yelled: "Don’t shoot, I don’t have a gun."
