The Wickliffe Middle School shooting was a school shooting that occurred on November 7, 1994 at Wickliffe Middle School in Wickliffe, Ohio, United States. The gunman, 37-year-old Keith A.

Ledeger shot and killed custodian Pete Christopher, as well as wounding the assistant principal, a police officer, and a teacher, before being stopped by an officer.
