Eric Harris, left, and Dylan Klebold, carrying a TEC-9 semi-automatic pistol, are pictured in the cafeteria at Columbine High School, in Littleton, Colo., during their April 20, 1999 shooting rampage where they killed a teacher and 12 students. Both gunmen killed themselves later in the school library. This still image is from a videotape released by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department. Jefferson County District Judge Brooke Jackson ordered the tapes released late last month, along with copies of law-enforcement radio transmissions. The releases were requested by the families of slain students Kelly Fleming and Daniel Rohrbough, who have sued the sheriff's office. (AP Photo/Jefferson County Sheriff's Department)
