Ends Shooting Spree.

Allison, Iowa -- Ronnie Loughlin, 15-year-old altar boy, sits handcuffed after surrendering to police at Allison on Sept. 4th. The youth had killed one woman in a shooting spree, and kidnaped a second whom he held hostage during a 5-hour ride through South Dakota, Minnesota, and Iowa. "I just went berserk, I guess," he told authorities. (1955)
