The Long Island Rail Road massacre was a mass murder that resulted in Colin Ferguson (born January 14, 1958) being convicted of murdering six people and injuring nineteen others on the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) in Garden City, New York.

On December 7, 1993, as a LIRR train pulled into the Merillon Avenue station, Ferguson pulled out his gun and started firing at passengers. He killed six and wounded nineteen before being stopped by three of the passengers: Kevin Blum, Mark McEntee, and Mike O'Connor. Ferguson's trial was notable for a number of unusual developments, including his firing of his defense counsel and insisting on representing himself and questioning his own victims on the stand.

On February 17, 1995, Ferguson was convicted of the 6 murders. He was also convicted of attempted murder for wounding nineteen passengers. As of 2015, he is serving his sentence of 315 years and 8 months to life at the Upstate Correctional Facility in Franklin County, New York.

The drawing is signed, Colin Ferguson.
