Michigan State University shooter ID’d as Anthony Dwayne McRae The crazed mass shooter who shot dead three students and left five others in critical condition at Michigan State University was identified Tuesday as 43-year-old Anthony Dwayne McRae.
The gunman was identified as police confirmed he was found dead of suspected self-inflicted gunshot wound at 11:35 p.m., just over three hours after he first opened fire.
Cops earlier said the killer was not thought to be connected to the university, and police did not reveal a possible motive in Tuesday’s early morning update.
They confirmed that all three killed and five wounded were students. Shots were fired — and students killed — in two locations on the sprawling East Lansing campus, about 90 miles northwest of Detroit.
McRae first started shooting inside an academic building called Berkey Hall, where two of the dead were found, before moving on to shoot up the MSU Union building, which houses a student dining hall, where a third fatality was found.
