2 Dead in Michigan College Shooting; Suspect at Large
(VOA): A man open fire Friday in a residence hall at a university in the northern U.S. state of Michigan, killing at least two people, according to campus police. Police believe the incident at Central Michigan University started with a "domestic situation" and say the deceased are not students, according to a school statement. There are no additional casualties, the statement said. The suspected gunman – a 19 year-old male – has not been apprehended and is considered "armed and dangerous," according to police. White House officials say President Donald Trump has been briefed on the situation. The shooting comes amid a fierce debate over guns that followed last month's deadly shooting at a Florida high school. Congress is currently considering whether to enact tougher gun control measures, including expanded background checks, raising the legal age for buying guns, and a ban on bump stock devices that convert semiautomatic weapons to automatic weapons.
