A single electron fired through a double slit may be deflected.
A single impact point is not and never will be an "interference pattern",
one can only see a probability distribution with multiple electrons.
Actually one never fires electrons through double slits, the diffraction
pattern comes off a molecular array. Watson and Crick used DNA as the
"double slit", which is in no way a double slit. http://www.practicalphysics.org/imag...eg300/1376.jpg
