Update on The DSU shooting

A man, suspected to be responsible for the shooting in Delaware sate university has been apprehended:

"OVER, Del. — Police arrested an 18-year-old man from New Jersey on Monday in the shooting of two Delaware State University students.

Loyer D. Braden of East Orange, N.J., was charged with attempted murder, assault and reckless endangerment, as well as a gun charge, according to court documents."

The rest of the story can be read on the Fox news website.

So, this guy is facing as many felony convictions as the amount of shots he fired, and still some people maintain that we cannot properly persecute violent gun abusers.

As far as response goes, this incident can be called a success story; The campus was cleared at incredible speed, the victims were well taken care off, and a suspect has already been apprehended and faces hefty charges.
Would have been better if this could have been prevented altogether of course. Just don't bring up reducing gun ownership as an option, at least in the same month when a "school-nail-bombing" has been in the headlines.
