A gunman opened fire on Monday night on the main campus of Michigan State University, killing three people and injuring five, before an hours-long manhunt for the suspect ended with his death, apparently from a self-inflicted gunshot.
The 43-year-old gunman had no known affiliation to the university, and his motive remained a mystery, police said at an early morning news briefing more than five hours after the violence began on the East Lansing campus, about 90 miles northwest of Detroit.
Details about the sequence events remained sketchy, but interim deputy chief of the university police, Chris Rozman said “shots were fired in two locations – an academic building called Berkey Hall and the Michigan State University, MSU, Union building.”
However, Investigators had no information about the motive, adding that the university was not aware of any threats made to the campus before Monday’s bloodshed. He added.
