Michigan State Police say shooting left several injured

Police said the victims were being transported to a local hospital.

Authorities ordered students and staff to shelter in place after a report of shots being fired around Berkey Hall, an academic building, on the East Lansing campus.

In an alert sent shortly after 8:30 p.m., campus police reported a “gunfire incident that occurred on or near the East Lansing campus.” The alert advised students and staff to “secure immediately” and monitor alert.msu.edu for information.

At 10:15 p.m., police said Berkey, along with nearby residences, were secure.


Separately, police reported a shooting at IM East, a student recreation center.

Aedan Kelley, a junior who lives half a mile (less than a kilometer) east of campus, said he had locked his doors and covered his windows “just in case”. The sirens were constant, he said, and a helicopter hovered overhead.

“It’s very scary,” Kelley said. “And then I have all these people texting me asking if I’m okay, which is overwhelming.”
