Michigan State shooting: Resources available to students

The Spartan community is waking up Tuesday to the aftermath of a horrific, deadly shooting on campus. 

Three people were killed, five others are in critical condition, and a subsequent manhunt across East Lansing lasted several hours before the suspect was located thanks to a tip caller and turned the gun on himself. 

The university has canceled all on-campus activities for the next two days, including athletics, classes and any campus-related activities. 

University operations will resume on Thursday, Feb. 16, but classes will not resume until Monday, Feb. 20. 

The university is beginning to make resources available to students and staff:
