2 Weeks After Florida, Gunman Opens Fire at Central Michigan University Killing Multiple Victims

A shooting occurred at Central Michigan University on Friday morning, just 16 days after the Florida high school massacre. Two people (not students) have reportedly been killed.

The suspect is a 19-year-old black male.

The school is on lockdown and classes have been canceled for the remainder of the day.

Here’s what’s known so far…

From Daily Caller:

Michigan State Police report at least two individuals were shot and killed Friday morning at Central Michigan University.

The city of Mt. Pleasant has locked down all city buildings. The suspect is allegedly an armed, black male wearing a blue hoodie and mustard-yellow jeans, reported WILX 10 and USA Today.

More from WILX:

Classes have been cancelled for the rest of the day.

The City of Mt. Pleasant is reporting the suspect is a black male and considered armed and dangerous. They also have all city buildings on lock down and are not accessible to the public, including McLaren Hospital, and Sacred Heart Academy is on lock down.

Michigan State Police are confirming that two people have been shot.

This is a breaking news story. WILX News 10 is working to get more details on this story, and will update the story as more information becomes available.

More from Michigan Radio:

Campbell Hall consists of four person, single bedroom, two bathroom suites, according to the University’s website.

According to CMU police, students and employees are being told to shelter in place.

Central Michigan has about 23,000 students.

More from NY Post:

The school has about 23,000 students and is about 125 miles northwest of Detroit.

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder wrote in a Twitter post: “I am in constant contact with @MichStatePolice as they work w/local law enforcement to determine what has occurred at Central Michigan University. The priority right now is the safety of those still on campus and I thank all first responders involved for their swift action.”

The shooting follows the deadly shooting rampage at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which left 17 dead on Valentine’s Day.

Not another school shooting! How many more of these does America have to deal with?

Of course, gun control is never the answer, as bad guys will always find a way to carry out an attack.

Taking guns from the law-abiding merely puts the innocent at risk.

Gun-free zones serves no purpose other than telling the bad guy nobody here is armed, so that liberal play is bunk, as well.

There may never be an answer to solving these problems. Until then, we can only pray that people stop committing these heinous acts of senseless violence.

Stay tuned for more on this devoloping situation…
