The crown prince sprayed gunfire through the sitting rooms for 15 minutes

“The king’s son, Crown Prince Dipendra, was tending bar. He mixed one of his cousins a drink, and the assembled relatives chatted as they waited for dinner. At about 9 p.m., Dipendra slipped out of the gathering. A short while later, he reappeared, wearing an army uniform, his cap pulled low over his face, an Uzi submachine gun and an M-16 assault rifle in his hands.”
