WYOMING, Mich., Feb. 14, 2023 — A mass shooting took place on the Michigan State University campus beginning around 8:20 p.m. last night. Campus police have confirmed that three students were killed and five remain in critical condition at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing. The investigation is ongoing, and people are encouraged to follow the guidance of the Michigan State University Police and Michigan State Police for the most up-to-date information. State Rep. John Fitzgerald (D-Wyoming) issued the following statement on the horrific shooting:
“Today, my heart aches with the entire Michigan State community. That campus, that university, is such a special place to me and to so many across our state, and maybe most importantly, it is ‘home’ for students. But, yesterday, this special place was turned into a place of mass violence.
“Thank you to the law enforcement officers and first responders who came from all over Ingham County and the region to support and care for students and faculty.
“We have work to do, work that is overdue and has long been ignored. Better legislation, better resources, a better strategy — all things that can contribute to reducing and eliminating gun violence, especially in places of learning.”
