DEKALB, Ill. (Feb. 14) - A gunman opened fire in a lecture hall at Northern Illinois University, injuring as many as 15 people, authorities said.


"It has been confirmed that there has been a shooting on campus and several people have been taken away by ambulance," officials said in a message posted on the school's Web site at 3:50 p.m. "People are urged not to come to campus."

Kishwaukee Community Hospital said on its Web site up to 15 victims were arriving, including three to four with head wounds.

University officials said the shooting took place in Cole Hall near the King Commons, a central gathering place on the 25,000-student campus.

"Take precautions until given the all clear," according to the school's Web site.

Messages were left for university police and police in DeKalb, located about 65 miles west of Chicago.

            This is horrible. I will never get Columbine scenes out of my head from when I watched it in high school. What makes these people just snap like that? So so sad.

              I don't understand, school should be a safe place.
