I just deleted what I'd written because I think it'* more meant for a personal blog. Even those of us in the area who haven't been directly affected have been heavily affected indirectly.

Everyone here'* in my thoughts right now. My friends and family are all okay.

came back and saw all the emergency vehicles and went WTF

why someone would want to walk into a room fireing rounds at people who are helpless
will blow my mind for ever

7 dead including the gunman. The gunman wasn't even a student. Unreal.

Thanks for relaying my post here DR.

The story is slightly different each time I hear it. Last I checked the gunman was a student at to NIU and was doing graduate social group work at U of I. Police found a U of I ID card in his body.

I'm wearing my NIU shirt and ballcap today in remembrance of those who lost their lives and everyone affected. I may try to go to campus tonight after work to check things out and pay respects, but I don't want to intrude on those grieving.

The stories are conflicting as the details come together. This morning foxnews.com reported he had no affiliations to NIU.
