On May 8, 1981, Lawrence Moore, 20
years, with a brain defect, burst into the Oregon Museum
Tavern and began shooting. Within seconds four people lay dead and 19
others were wounded.
During the trial of another lethal Oregonian,
serial killer Randy Woodfield, defense attornies tried to lay the blame
of Randy's killings on the mentally defective Moore. Fortunately good
sense prevailed Moore did not become Woodfield's escape.
