Breaking News: NIU Shooting Save Email Print

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DEKALB, Ill. (AP) -- Northern Illinois University officials say a gunman who opened fire on campus shot and killed himself this afternoon.

No other information about the gunman is available.

Student George Gaynor was in the class where the shooting took place. He told the school's student newspaper that the shooter was "a skinny white guy with a stocking cap on."

Kishwaukee Community Hospital says 13 victims have arrived, and earlier reported three to four had head wounds.

Two victims were being airlifted to Rockford Memorial Hospital, and two others with head injuries were expected at OSF St. Anthony Medical Center, also in Rockford.

The Chicago office of the FBI was sending agents to the scene.

The shooting took place around 3 p.m.

Classes have been canceled for tonight.

From NIU Website at 4:14 pm:

Campus police report that the immediate danger has passed. The gunman is no longer a threat. The DeKalb campus is closed tomorrow. Students can go to any residence hall for counseling.

I really hope the shooter burns. I wouldn't be suprised if his reason to kill/hurt innocent people would be for some stupid reason, like his girlfriend broke up with him, or he had a really hard test or kids made fun of him.

If he was truely mentally ill, then it's a tragedy that nobody found out before the shooting, but IMO, it still really doesn't justify his actions.

Apparently, he was mentally unstable and recently stopped taking his meds, contributing to the cause of the shooting.
