The shooting of the Florida high school in Florida: A shooting that killed four people, killed in dozens of shootings, and the gun violence archive
The Gun Violence Archive says Monday’s shooting is the latest massshooting in the US that has claimed dozens of lives. The group believes that a mass shooting is one in which more than four people are shot or killed and the shooter is not involved. The group said that in the year 2022, 650 mass shootings took place in the country.
The campus became a crime scene after a lone gunman opened fire at two separate locations, forcing terrified students to run and hide as hundreds of police officers swarmed the school.
The attack came a day before the fifth anniversary of the mass shooting at the school in the state of Florida, with four or more people wounded or killed, not including the shooter.
Andrew McCabe said that the FBI is going through the history of the person to find out what brought them to this moment in this community. “This community is struggling to understand why they are the latest in what is a uniquely American experience, and understanding and experiencing a mass shooting in their midst.”
Hours after the first gunshots rang out, the suspect “was contacted by law enforcement off campus” and “it does appear that that suspect has died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” Rozman reported.
Trush said he was watching TV just after 8 p.m. in his apartment when he saw police cars and ambulances speeding down Grand River Avenue. People were running out of the building.
“Although we’re relieved to no longer have an active threat on campus, we know that there is much healing to do after this,” said Chris Rozman the interim deputy chief of the MSU police.
As shelter-in-place orders were in effect Monday evening, another student, Gabe Treutel, said he and his dorm mates hunkered down and turned to a local police scanner for information.
Another MSU student, Nithya Charles, told CNN she was sheltering within a lounge area at Campbell Hall on the north side of campus with about 30 other people.
In an interview earlier this night, Charles said that her co-workers heard shots but she did not hear any gunshots herself.
Three days of investigation into a shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and the fate of East Lansing Public Schools, which was shut down Tuesday
Students will feel a renewed police presence over the next two days as the university moves into emergency operations, even though officials said there is no more threat to the campus.
There are no classes, athletics or campus activities at the school for 48 hours.
“We want to wrap our warm arms around every family that is touched by this tragedy and give them the peace that passeth understanding in moments like this… we will change over time,” Woodruff said. This cannot happen again.
The attack at MSU – which came one day before the five-year anniversary of a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida – resulted in the closure of all East Lansing Public Schools Tuesday.
“Tonight has been horrific. It has been terrible for the students around the region. Schools have been closed. Our whole community has been affected by this. It’s affected families, everyone across our community,” Lansing Mayor Andy Schor said.
“This truly has been a nightmare that we are living tonight,” Rozman said. He emphasized that there is so much healing that will need to take place after this, that they are relieved that there is no active threat on campus.
MSU Vice President for Public Safety and Chief of Police Marlon Lynch said responding to the shooting was a “monumental task” due in part to the size of the campus.
We have more than 5000 acres of campus and 400 buildings so we had to divide it into groups to find evidence and share it as it comes through. But with a university our size and the areas that we are responsible for, that becomes a task,” Lynch said.
The Center of Monday Night’s Multiple Shootings is Open and Open for the General Public During Business Hours, according to Associated News Corp.
The two buildings at the center of Monday evening’s shootings are accessible to the general public during business hours, police said in an early morning news conference Tuesday.
Hundreds of officers from various agencies were dispatched to the scene. The victims were taken to Sparrow Hospital. They were listed in critical condition, but no other information about them was available.
By 10:15 p.m. ET, police said Berkey and other buildings, were secured, and the shelter in place warning was lifted early Tuesday morning. Police told parents to stay away from the campus earlier in the evening.
“For parents, we understand,” Rozman said. I can only imagine the feelings that are being felt right now. It’s going to help us and it’s going to help us identify the shooter since a lot of people are not on campus at this point.
