Updated: Shooting On Illinois University Campus Leaves 1 Dead


Multiple shots were fired at the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign late Motzoei Shabbos. The university issued an emergency alert on its website, saying the shooter had left the area, IBT reports.

The emergency alert urged people to “avoid Green street from 2nd to 4th and 2nd street from Green to Healey.” Police who responded to the scene of the shooting reportedly said the shots were fired in an alleyway. Some unconfirmed reports claimed that two people were dead in the incident, while other reports stated that at least nine people were shot. However, there is no official confirmation so far.

According to IBT, police and emergency services have been dispatched to the area of shooting at the university campus. Several students expressed their anger over the lack of information from the police and the university about the shooting.

UPDATE: NBC reports that one person is dead and four others were wounded in two shooting incidents at the University of Illinois’ Champaign campus early this morning. At 12:38 a.m., officers responded to multiple calls of shots fired in the 300 block of East Green Street, according to the Champaign Police Department. There they found four victims with gunshot wounds, who were taken to area hospitals, where one victim, George Korchev, of Mundelein, was pronounced dead, police said.

Police said an argument broke out at an apartment party near the scene, then moved outside where a fight broke out and shots were fired. Korchev and the other victims were not involved in the fight, authorities said, but were walking in the area when gunfire erupted, according to NBC.

  1. Probably some right wing nut job after this is the only conclusion u r allowed to jump to without proof or else u r an islamaphobist or whatever name they will call you

  2. Impossible! There couldn’t have been people shot! This university campus is a gun free zone; and it’s a known fact that all guns magically disappear when outlawed, because thieves and murderers may disregard the entire penal code except for the gun free zone rules. Vote for Hillary to outlaw all guns; the simple law abiding peasants don’t need means of self defense, as the police will always be there in minutes when seconds count.

  3. It seems that the State of Illinois has become a 3rd world country. The bleeding heart Liberals, led by Obama/Hillary, couldn’t care less if poor downtrodden blacks get slaughtered like sheep on the streets of Chicago. They never mention it. They bury it under the carpet. They are terrible hypocrites who shouldn’t hold public office.
