...By the time Ian Lee Stawicki's rampage was over, five people had been shot in Cafe Racer -- four fatally, including two musicians who frequently played there.
The gunman put his two .45-caliber handguns in his pocket, then bent down, picked a bowler-style hat off the head of one of his dead victims, placed it on his own head and walked out.
