High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The first Columbine
Massacre, sometimes called the Columbine Mine massacre to
distinguish it from the Columbine High School massacre, occurred in
1927, in the town of Serene, Colorado. A fight broke out between
Colorado state police and a group of striking coal miners, during
which the unarmed miners were attacked with machine guns. It is
unclear whether the machine guns were used by the police or by
guards working for the mine. Six strikers were killed, and dozens
were injured. The state police later testified that they had not
used machine guns in the fight. The miners and some witnesses
testified that machine guns were used. Some witnesses identified a
mine guard who had climbed the tipple and may have operated the
machine gun mounted there, providing one possible explanation for
the discrepancy in testimony. However, the machine gun near the
watertank was reportedly manned by one of Scherf's men. There
continued to be violent confrontations during the strike. For
example, two strike supporters were killed in Walsenburg.
