Three students were killed, and five others suffered severe injuries when a gunman entered the Michigan State University campus on Monday.
University police have named the deceased MSU students as sophomore Brian Fraser, junior Arielle Anderson, and junior Alexandria Verner. According to CBS News, Fraser was the president of the Michigan State chapter of Phi Delta Theta and the two juniors were residents of the Detroit area.
Although the injured students are currently in critical condition, no information is available concerning their prognosis.
“Our Spartan hearts are broken,” the university’s interim president, Teresa Woodruff, said Tuesday. “We’re grieving, but as a community, we are grieving together.”
“It appears he has died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” MSU Police and Public Safety tweeted. “There is no longer a threat to campus, and the shelter-in-place has been lifted.”
