Michigan State suspends classes, activities following deadly campus shooting
The Michigan State community is reeling after a deadly shooting on the East Lansing campus late Monday night.
Authorities reported Tuesday morning that 3 Michigan State students were killed in the shooting. 5 additional students are currently in the hospital and are listed as in critical condition as of Tuesday.
Police have identified the lone gunman as Anthony McRae, a 43-year-old resident, who died due to a self-inflicted gunshot Monday evening.
“We have no idea why he came to campus to do this tonight. That is part of our ongoing investigation,” said Interim Deputy Chief Chris Rozman per ESPN.
As authorities continue an investigation into the shooting, Michigan State has suspended all classes until Monday, along with additional activities. Michigan State men’s basketball was set to host Minnesota Wednesday night while men’s tennis was also set to host Drake on Wednesday. Those events have been postponed, as well as the road trip for women’s basketball against Purdue originally set for Wednesday.
