Shooting Victims at MSU Were at All Students

Motive behind the attack remains a mystery

Late Monday, a gunman killed three Michigan State University students and badly wounded five others in shootings that set off a three-hour police manhunt, forcing scared students to hide in residence halls and classrooms at one of America's largest college campuses.

The gunman, a 43-year-old man who had no connection to the university, was found late Monday off campus and died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, the police said. But as hundreds of officers searched for him, anxiety rippled across the campus and the nearby community of East Lansing.

"I was shaking the entire time," said Sophia Nedoff, 19, a dietetics major who learned of the attack after emerging from her chemistry exam. She hid for hours like thousands of others after an email told students and faculty to "Run, Hide, Fight." "I'm still a little shaken up from it."
