WALKER, 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. Two of the three victims’ names were released today — Brian Fraser and Alexandria Verner. The shooting triggered a manhunt that continued for hours, ending with the gunman dying of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The shooter has no apparent link to the university, and his motive is still unknown. The investigation is ongoing. State Rep. Carol Glanville (D-Walker) issued the following statement on the horrific shooting:


“I can barely find words to express what I am feeling about the mass shooting on MSU’s campus last night. I am angry, frustrated and, more than anything, I feel deep sympathy for all those affected — my heart is with the students, their families, university faculty and staff, and the entire Spartan community. As a prior educator and as the chair of the Higher Education Committee, I know it is not only important but absolutely necessary that we take active measures to ensure that institutions of learning are safe places for learning and growth. I am more committed than ever to engender that safety via broadly-supported, data-driven, common-sense gun reform.”
