Michigan university shooting: Three dead and killer still at large
Michigan State University has been locked down after a shooting left three dead and five wounded on Monday night.
Police said on Twitter that the gunman, who is still at large, is short and wore a mask.
Authorities urged people on campus to seek shelter soon after shots rang out at 8.30pm.
They later released images that showed the suspected killer wearing red shoes and a denim jacket and said he was last seen leaving the campus union building immediately after the shooting.
Victims were admitted to Sparrow Hospital, some with “life-threatening injuries”, interim deputy police chief Chris Rozman said.
The university said all activities had been cancelled for 48 hours and advised students not to come to the campus.
Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson described the incident as “unfathomable”.
“Holding the entire university community in my heart,” Ms Benson said on Twitter. “This repetitive terror cannot continue. We must come together and do whatever it takes to protect our kids and communities from gun violence.”
The campus is one of the largest in the US by area and has more than 50,000 students, according to its website.
