The man who shot and killed three people and wounded another five at Michigan State University last night has been identified.
Officials said that Anthony Dwayne McRae, a convicted felon, committed the heinous act of violence before apparently turning the gun on himself .
McRae, 43, was “released from supervision” in May 2021 after receiving an 18-month prison sentence in November 2019 for possessing a loaded firearm in a vehicle, The Detroit News reported this morning.
McRae “shot himself miles away from campus while being confronted by police,” according to WILX.
No motive has been uncovered for the shootings, police said Monday night, and no connection had been found between McRae and the university.
