Andreas Drexler was a german national who was studying computer science at Stanford University in the early 1990s. On April 23, 1992 he traveled to Bloomington with the intent to kill his ex-girlfriend, Susan Clements. He brought 2000 rounds of ammunition in addition to other weapons. On the evening of the 23rd, he shot and killed Clements on the 14th floor of Eigenmann Hall and wounded another student, Steven Molen who later died. Drexler committed suicide shortly after the shootings. He was found a few blocks away from Eigenmann Hall.
Drexler posted an add in a usenet newsgroup a few weeks before he used the vehicle to transport himself and his weapons to Bloomington.
