MSU grieves after shooting spree that leaves 3 dead
Michigan State University has cancelled classes for the rest of this week.
That’s as the East Lansing campus grieves after three students were killed and five were critically injured by a gunman.
Officials say the 43-year-old suspected gunman fled campus before taking his own life. Authorities say they don’t know his motive and are not aware of any connection to the school. Governor Gretchen Whitmer said more must be done to curb gun violence.
“As parents, we tell our kids it’s going to be OK. We say that all the time. But the truth is words are not good enough. We must act and we will.”
Whitmer has endorsed measures that include universal background checks and a red flag law that would allow authorities to confiscate guns from people deemed a risk.
