Marking 41st anniversary of deadly Wilkes-Barre shooting
By Julia Priest,
WILKES-BARRE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — Monday was a dark day in history as 28/22 News marks the 41st anniversary of the deadliest mass shooting of its time.
Wilkes-Barre was the center of attention back in 1982 after the former Camp Hill Prison Guard George Banks went on a shooting spree with an AR-15. He killed a combined 13 people in Wilkes-Barre and Jenkins Township and injured another.
