Michigan State University Mass Shooting Leaves Three Students Dead & Five in Critical Condition

A mass shooting at Michigan State University left three students dead and five critically wounded. The campus reportedly sent out a security alert to take shelter Monday evening around 6:30 pm. The incident allegedly occurred until Tuesday's early morning hours of about 2:00 am. (Photo credit below via Getty Images).

According to local authorities, the alleged suspect, 43-year-old Anthony McRae, was found dead from what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The suspect was arrested in 2019 for gun possession without a weapon's permit. McRae reportedly had other run-ins with the law due to driving without a license and additional gun charges.

At this time, authorities cannot determine a motive for the shooter; however, Tuesday is the anniversary of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, which claimed the lives of 17 people in 2018. Police located a gun at the crime scene and obtained a search warrant for the shooter's residence.

Stay tuned; this is a developing story.
