Earlier today, a student opened fire in a lecture hall at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Ill in a new Valentine's Day massacre:
The shooting took place during an introductory geology class at the university's Cole Hall in the campus center around 3:15 p.m. local time. Some 163 students were registered for the class.
"The assailant began firing into the assembled class from the stage — from the front," Peters said.
He described the incident as a "very brief rapid-fire assault that ended with the gunman taking his own life."
My heart goes out to the victims and their family - it's a senseless, crazy tragedy.
