The Michigan State University shooter has been identified as Anthony Dwayne McRae.
On Monday night McRae opened fire on dozens of MSU students and ended up killing three students along with himself.
At the time of initial reports the mainstream media was covering every angle of the story but since McRae has been IDed as the killer the story just disappeared.
Here is a report that Anthony McRae was previously charged with a firearm violation that could have resulted in him serving up 5 years in prison.https://t.co/j9HKVkhuG6

The New York Post added more details:
The mass shooter who killed three students and left five others in critical condition at Michigan State University was identified Tuesday as a 43-year-old local man who was previously busted on firearm charges.
Anthony Dwayne McRae was IDed after he was found dead of a suspected self-inflicted gunshot wound at 11:35 p.m., just over three hours after he first opened fire at the East Lansing campus.
“We have absolutely no idea what the motive was at this point,” MSU Police Interim Deputy Chief Chris Rozman said early Tuesday.
McRae “had no affiliation to the university — he was not a student, faculty or staff, current or previous.”
“I know everybody wants to know what the motive is. We don’t have an answer right now, that’s the honest truth,” Rozman said of the “heinous” attack.
FYI 🚨: The MSU shooter was a convicted felon named Anthony McRae so it was illegal for him to have a gun at all. He did this with a handgun, not an AR-15. He was previously convicted for breaking a gun law. Criminals don’t follow gun laws. pic.twitter.com/m6fLzGTMuQ

Just the News covered the story too:
he gunman who shot up the Michigan State University campus this week, killing three people before turning the gun on himself, was several years ago hit with a felony gun charge that was later dropped by prosecutors, according to media reports.
Anthony McRae, who killed himself after police say he killed three students and injured five at MSU on Monday night, was “arrested in Lansing and charged in June 2019 with carrying a concealed pistol without a concealed carry permit,” the Detroit News reported on Tuesday.
McRae was subsequently charged with misdemeanor possession of a loaded firearm in a vehicle, the News said; he eventually pleaded guilty to the lesser charge, with prosecutors throwing out the more serious felony accusation.
If convicted of the felony, McRae would have been facing five years in prison; on his guilty plea he received 12 months probation, according to court records.
