A student walks by candles that arranged to spell ‘MSU’ in a show of solidarity with the Michigan State University community at the Grotto on Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2023. A gunman killed three students and injured five others in a campus shooting in East Lansing, Michigan, Monday night.

Three student victims were killed in a Monday shooting at Michigan State University (MSU). In a Tuesday statement released by the University, Fr. John Jenkins offered condolences.

“The senseless gun violence that continues to plague our nation has again shattered a university campus. To the victims of this violence, as well as the many friends and colleagues we have at Michigan State, the prayers and support of the Notre Dame community are with you,“ the statement said.

A statement released by Saint Mary’s College on social media echoed the sentiment.

“We mourn with our sisters and brothers at Michigan State University. We pray for physical healing for the survivors and strength for the families and friends of those who lost their lives in this unnecessary tragedy,“ the College wrote.
