Before that there was Dean Melberg and the Fairchild AFB murders.
The military policeman who ended the shooting has written an informative book on the murders, the killer, and the aftermath.
He discussed the book and the incident on this podcast. Highly recommended.
In the wake of the Parkland shooting, many defended the police non-response by claiming that no one armed with just a pistol could stop a mass killer who was armed with a semi-automatic rifle. At Fairchild AFB, SSgt. Andy Brown did just that. At a range of seventy yards he fired four shots, hit Melberg with two of them. One was a head shot that ended the fight.
There are a bunch of people who are alive today because SSgt. Brown was the man on the scene on 20 June 1994.
In a healthy media culture Brown would be as famous as David Hogg.
Exit question: why did the command failures at Fairchild get ignored while those at Tailhook were front page news for years and years?
Is it for the same reason that the Parkland and Charleston church shootings have received 100 times the attention given to Sutherland Springs church murders?
