At least three people have been shot dead and five more taken to the hospital – some with life-threatening injuries – after a gunman opened fire at Michigan State University on Monday night.
The suspect remains at large, and police on Monday night released a photo of the man, who they described as a short black male wearing a mask, red shoes, jean jackets, and a baseball cap.
‘Remain sheltered in place,’ said Chris Rozman, the interim deputy chief of Michigan State University Police said.
Rozman urged everyone to stay away from the campus.
Helicopters were overhead as the urgent search for the gunman continued, with teams spreading out across the 5,200-acre campus.

Rozman said the incident began at 8:18 pm in Berkey Hall, on campus.
‘We were quickly on the scene, within minutes, and there we did locate several victims of a shooting.
‘The incident did move to a building in close proximity – the Michigan State Union building, where there was another report of a shooting immediately after the report of the first incident.’
Rozman said there was ‘an overwhelming law enforcement response’ to the shooting.
He said there was one suspect and he was ‘last seen leaving the MSU Union on foot on the north side of that building.’
The shooting comes on the eve of the fifth anniversary of the Valentine’s Day shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, which killed 17 people.
