      Currently there are 2 confirmed dead and 4 injured, 3 of who are in critical condition. The shooter is in custody and police are currently sweeping the buildings.

      I can see the helicopters from my dorm.

      Some news articles:

      Update: The campus is still on lockdown while the rest of the buildings are cleared. A candlelight vigil has been planned for May 1 (tomorrow) at 6 PM.

      Update 2: Today was the last day of classes, with exams starting Thursday. All exams before next Sunday will be canceled (not sure if they'll be rescheduled yet).

      Update 3: As of 5:20 AM, the lockdown has been lifted and campus is all clear. The names of the injured have been released.

      The shooter has been charged with:

      • 4 counts of attempted first degree murder

      • 4 counts of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury

      • 1 count of discharge of a firearm on education property

      • 1 count of possession of a gun on educational property

      • 2 counts of murder (they did not specify which degree)

      All of these are felony charges.

      It should be noted that the shooter was arrested before he even had the chance to leave the classroom. That was an extremely fast police response.

      Edit 4: Due to exams being cancelled through Sunday, all exams are now optional. Looks like I might only have to worry about 1 final now.
