A gunman killed five students and wounded 16 others in a Northern
Illinois University lecture hall on Thursday afternoon in DeKalb
before killing himself, according to university and police officials.
John G. Peters, the president of Northern Illinois University,
reported at a news conference that four of the dead were women and two
He said four died at the scene, including the gunman, and the other
two died at the hospital.
All the wounded and the dead were students, including the graduate
student leading the ocean sciences class.
According to students in the class, a tall white skinny man dressed in
black stepped out from behind a curtain on the stage of the lecture
hall, said nothing, and opened fire with a shotgun.
He shot again and again, witnesses said, perhaps 20 times.
Students in the large lecture hall, stunned, dropped to the floor.
The gunman, whom the authorities did not immediately identify, died of
a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Mr. Peters said, his body found on the
stage of the lecture hall.
Police from the campus, which sits in a snow-filled, rural community
65 miles due west of Chicago, said three weapons were found with the
man?s body ? two handguns, including a Glock, and the shotgun.
He had ammunition left over, the police here said.
Another liberal goes postal, and with guns, which (hypocritically)
they are supposed to be against.
