After a shooting spree at Michigan State University on Monday evening that left three people dead and five others injured, a suspect has apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound death, according to authorities.
Chris Rozman, the interim deputy chief, declared that there was no longer a threat to the school. “There is no longer a need to hide in place on campus,” the statement said. “We believe there to be just one shooter in this event.
A shelter-in-place order was issued after the shooting, which took place at two distinct campus sites, and hundreds of law enforcement personnel from various agencies descended on the campus to look for the shooter. Rozman, who remained anonymous, said that the suspect, a 43-year-old man, had no connection to the school.
Several shooting victims were discovered in Berkey Hall where the event began at 8:18 p.m. ET, according to Rozman. He claimed that shortly after, shots were fired in the general vicinity of the Michigan State University Union Building.
“Emergency personnel and police moved swiftly. At each of those scenes, we attended to the casualties, Rozman added.

According to Rozman
Two of the fatalities occurred at Berkey Hall, while the third occurred at the MSU Union. According to Rozman, at least five patients were transported to a hospital, and all of them are in severe condition. If there were any students among the victims, the police have not said. It seems that the suspect died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Rozman added, after the suspect “was contacted by law enforcement off campus” many hours later.
We are certainly experiencing a nightmare right now, Rozman declared. While acknowledging that there would be a lot of mending to do following this, he continued, “We are relieved to no longer have an active danger on campus.
Rozman stated that the motive for the shooting is yet unknown. Rozman stated, “I can’t even begin to comprehend what that purpose might be. Naturally, that will be covered in our research. I anticipate that everyone will continue to wonder about that. We will try to figure it out, but as of right now, we are unsure.
School police at MSU said that all courses, sporting events, and other campus-related activities be postponed for 48 hours and asked that people “DO NOT come to campus tomorrow.” Students endured a terrible situation during the hours-long incident as cops in tactical gear invaded the school while the culprit was still at large.
Police tweeted that Berkey Hall and many additional campus buildings, including Brody Hall, Snyder/Phillips Hall, Mason Hall, Abbot Hall, Landon Hall, and the MSU Union, had been cleared about 10:10 p.m.
Before an emergency notice went out to students notifying them of the shooting on campus, MSU student Chris Trush told CNN he observed people fleeing out of the Union building, a gathering place for students.
Just after 8 o’clock in the evening, Trush claimed he was watching TV in his apartment when he noticed police cars and ambulances speeding down Grand River Avenue. Then he observed individuals rushing from the Union building.

That is when I realized something was very wrong, he continued. Trush claimed he believed there had been a gunshot when he saw hundreds of police officers flood the area with long weapons. Naturally, I’m not going outside for the next several days, he declared.
Another MSU student, Nithya Charles, told CNN that she and approximately 30 other individuals were taking refuge in a lounge area at Campbell Hall on the north side of campus earlier in the night when shelter-in-place orders were in force.
Charles revealed to CNN’s Erin Burnett earlier in the evening, “We’re not learning very much,” adding that she did not personally hear any gunshots but claimed that several of her coworkers did. Although everyone was undoubtedly under some tension, Charles noted that things were now seeming quiet.
