Michigan State University Shooting: Morning Updates


Last night a gunman opened fire at Michigan State University, killing three and injuring others.

The shooter then died of self-inflicted gun injuries.

No name has been released.

CNN offered some updates this morning:

The two buildings at the center of Monday evening’s shootings on the campus of Michigan State University are accessible to the general public during business hours, police said in an early morning news conference Tuesday.

Michigan State University Department of Public Safety Interim Deputy Chief Chris Rozman said Berkey Hall, where the first shooting occurred, is an academic building where activities were occurring. The second building, the student union, is similarly open to the general public and doesn’t require any special access, according to Rozman.

Many have taken to Twitter to argue for and against gun laws in Michigan and nationwide.

However, some users have called out the obvious – criminals don’t obey laws.

According to NBC News,

The suspected shooter, a 43-year-old man with no affiliation to the university, was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot wound after a confrontation with law enforcement officials in the adjacent city of Lansing, Rozman said.

A motive is unknown.

“We have no idea why he came to campus to do this tonight,” Rozman said.

The suspect and the victims have not been identified. Police said they were determining whether the victims were students or otherwise affiliated with MSU.
