Campus Shooting…Again, Now in Northern Illinois


Northern Illinois University is the place where this incident happened. This a second incident campus shooting at this month after Lousiana Technical College accident. CARYN ROUSSEAU and DEANNA BELLANDI from Associated Press Writers reported that another student shot when a gunman opened fire at a lecture hall at Northern Illinois University has died, bringing the toll to seven, including the gunman, a coroner said Friday.

Investigators and school officials did not immediately know why the man fired on a geology class with a shotgun and two handguns Thursday before committing suicide.

The shooter had been a graduate student in sociology at Northern Illinois as recently as spring 2007, but was not currently enrolled at the 25,000-student campus, University President John Peters said.

“It appears he may have been a student somewhere else,” University Police Chief Donald Grady said. “We have no motive and I have no way of knowing what the motive was.”

Campus Shooting…Again

Sorority members of Northern Illinois University participate in a candlelight vigil for Dan Parmenter early Friday, Feb. 15, 2008. Parmenter is one of the five victims of the NIU shooting Thursday in DeKalb, Ill.,. A former student dressed in black walked onto the stage of a lecture hall at Northern Illinois University and opened fire on a packed science class Thursday, killing five students, wounding 16 and setting off a panicked stampede before committing suicide. Where Next…?

  1. Daniel Lorenzo Parmenter is the true hero of Illinois gaving his life to save his girlfriend. He is a direct descendant of the American Revolution, and he is eligible of either membership to the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution or the Children of the American Revolution. Also, he might be eligible for membership for the Mayflower Society and the Sons and Daughters of Pilgrims! He is the 12th cousin of yet another hero, Gary Michael Joy, and the distant cousin of John Adams, John Quincy Adams, and Samuel Adams! He is related to the founder of Boston and is of New England Yankee stock!

  2. Daniel Lorenzo Parmenter should have been Daniel Louis Parmenter. Parmenter’s parents are still living. Daniel is the distant cousin of heroes Terry Joe Mabry and Heather Christensen!
