Hear from relatives of the 13 and 11 year-old gunmen who killed 5 and wounded 9 when they opened fire on their middle school.

Even in the rising tide of youth violence that has rocked America in the late 1990s, the incident stands out. In 1998, 11-year-old Andrew Golden and 13-year-old Mitchell Johnson killed four classmates and one teacher and wounded nine others when they opened fire outside the Westside Middle School in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

AMERICAN JUSTICE® takes a long, hard look at the JONESBORO SCHOOLYARD AMBUSH, searching for clues to what happened and how to prevent similar tragedies in the future. Hear from civil authorities who were involved with the case and discover why the punishment the boys received led to changes in Arkansas' juvenile justice laws. See how the warning signs were similar to those in other cases of school violence, but once again, they went ignored until too late. Experts examine the significance of the boys' ages, while family members offer an intimate glimpse into their lives.

Join AMERICAN JUSTICE® for an unflinching examination of the case that proved that the scourge of school violence knows no age limits.
