lone gunman

lone gunman

A shooter that acts alone. This phrase is perhaps most often associated with Lee Harvey Oswald, the man who assassinated John F. Kennedy. I know you think the murders were perpetrated by a lone gunman, but I just can't believe that no one else helped him to carry out all this violence.
