Hundreds of graduates are traumatized after shootings erupted at high school commencement ceremonies in Louisiana, Michigan and Tennessee in less than a 24-hour period. Daily Mail reports.
Four people were injured when shots rang out at Southeastern Louisiana University Thursday night as Hammond High Magnet School seniors and their families were exiting the university's activity center. The gunman has been arrested.
A 16-year-old boy and 40-year-old woman were also struck Thursday when multiple gunmen fired 'a large number of shots' from two rival cars outside a Michigan high school graduation ceremony.
The two shootings come less than 24 hours after a 17-year-old boy opened fire at Middle Tennessee State University, leaving one boy, 18, dead and another, 17, injured.
The teenage gunman, who allegedly knew his victims, was arrested Thursday and was charged with first-degree murder.
Officers responded to reports of shots fired at Southeastern Louisiana University (SLU) just after 8pm Thursday as Hammond High Magnet School's commencement was letting out.
Four people were struck and suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Further information about the victims remains unknown at this time.
