Makeshift Memorial Grows for Victims of Michigan State University Shootings
A makeshift memorial is growing on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing following a shooting that claimed the lives of three people and injured five others.
Some students have come forward to share their stories, including a survivor of both the Michigan State shooting and the Sandy Hook school shooting in Connecticut.
“The fact that this is the second mass shooting I have now lived through is incomprehensible,” said senior Jackie Matthews.
“We can no longer just provide love and prayers.
It needs to be legislation and action.
It is not okay.”
Matthews is calling on lawmakers to act on gun safety legislation in the wake of the shooting.
Meanwhile, the driver accused in Monday’s deadly truck rampage in New York City is set to appear in court today.
The suspect, who police say was having a mental health crisis during the incident, faces charges in the death of at least one person and the injury of eight others.
In other news, CBS2’s Elise Finch has the latest weather forecast.
“We are starting out with cloudy skies and a tenth of light showers this morning,” she said.
“We get significant clearing later today.
Grey to start at 49 degrees.
Mild in and around New York City.”
Finch says that temperatures will soar this afternoon, with the warmest locations seeing low to mid-60s.
“For New York City, 64 degrees and lots of sunshine but breezy,” she added.
“Overall it will look and feel like April this afternoon.”
