This is a prayer request. Yesterday, St. Valentines Day, there was a gun shooting at NIU, a collage about an hour from where I live. We heard the news from a friend, because a girl I know goes to collage there. She said she was walking down the hall to that classroom for her next class, but before she got there, the gunman locked the door to the room. While she escaped, some of her friends were in there.
According to news reports, at least 7 people were killed - including the gunman. 22 people total were injured or killed, with 17 or 18 having to be taken to the hospital. At 9:30pm, 5 were in critical condidtion. All of the injured were students, and the gunman is believed to be a graduate of the collage.
Please join me in praying for the souls of those who are dead, for their families and friends, and for all the people involved.
