Erwin Mikolajczyk was a German rampage killer who killed six people and wounded eight others at the district court in Euskirchen, Germany on March 9, 1994.

Just after his appeal against a sentence for assaulting his former girlfriend, Vera Lamesic, had ended with an upholding of his conviction, 39-year-old Erwin Mikolajczyk re-entered the court building armed with .45-caliber Colt pistol and a homemade bomb in a backpack. In the hallway he fatally shot Lamesic, two women who had accompanied her, as well as two other people, and then entered the court room where he killed 33-year-old Alexander Schäfer, the judge who had convicted him. When he ran out of bullets, Mikolajczyk killed himself by detonating the bomb. A total of eight people were also wounded in the attack.[1]
