EAST LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — The Rock, a popular gathering spot on Michigan State’s campus that was painted Tuesday to say ‘How many more?’ was repainted with a pro-gun message overnight.
With dozens of flowers laying on the ground, The Rock was painted with a message that said “Allow us to defend ourselves & carry on campus.”
This of course comes two days after three Michigan State students were shot and killed and five more were critically injured.
Shortly after students saw the message, a new message was painted that said “To those we to lost – to those healing – Brian – Arielle – Alexandria” which are the names of the three victims identified by Michigan State University Police.
Since the incident, 43-year-old Anthony McRae has been identified as the suspect. Police say he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
A vigil is scheduled to be at The Rock Wednesday night at 6 p.m. and a peaceful sit-down event at the Capitol is scheduled from 11-3.
