A month and just 2weeks into the year 2023, and the United States of America has already recorded sixty-seven (67) mass shooting with the latest happening on the Michigan state university campus on the eve of Valentine’s day the 13th February,2023.
The attacker on Monday night opened fire at Berkey Hall and a nearby student union at the East Lansing campus, killing three (3) and wounding five (5) others before shooting himself while trying to escape.
The campus police reports on twitter read; “There are three confirmed fatalities. This is in addition to the five victims who have been transported to the hospital.”
Chris Rozman, interim deputy chief of the campus police department in a statement added that the police was doing everything within their power to ensure safety on campus; “I can only imagine the emotion that’s involved right now… we are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our campus and all of our students.”
Early report on the incident was not clear what kind of firearm used by the gunman who has been described as black.
Authorities have since ordered students to shelter in place for hours at the campus.
