James Oliver Huberty was an American Mass Murderer who perpetrated the San Ysidro McDonald’s Massacre on July 18, 1984. 41 year old James Huberty left his home and drove down San Ysidro Boulevard. According to eyewitnesses, he drove first toward a Big Bear supermarket and then toward a U.S. Post Office branch, before entering the parking lot of the McDonald’s restaurant, just 200 yards, and completely visible from his Averil Road apartment, on San Ysidro Boulevard.

It was approximately 3:56 p.m. on July 18, 1984. He had in his possession a 9mm Browning HP semi-automatic pistol, a 9mm Uzi carbine, a Winchester 1200 12-gauge pump-action shotgun, a box and a cloth bag filled with hundreds of rounds of ammunition for each weapon. He exited his vehicle and the madness was now well on its way to the point of no return. The McDonald’s Massacre lasted 78 minutes and left twenty-one people dead, five of them children and one pregnant woman. Nineteen others were also wounded before James Huberty himself was killed by a sniper. He is currently the 8th deadliest shooting massacre by a single perpetrator in U.S. history.
