    CBS says one dead. Shooter believed to be white male, black clothing.
    Also they appear to be posting twitter feed(s) for this event.

    It's sounding like an isolated incident, though they're still looking for the shooter. Haven't been any more shots for a while.

    I've always wondered: what is so important about something like this happening on a school campus, versus in a crowded shopping area, or a busy street, or ...?

    When it's some crazy going off his meds at some corner, it's local news. But, by golly, if it involves an "active shooter" and it's at one of the "sensitive" spots the destroyers have nightmares about as being the unprotected risk areas in the country, it's national news. Agenda, anyone?

    He is still on the lose but, police have lifted the lock down on the campus.
    24-year-old Austin Boutain was named by the Salt Lake City Police Department late Monday as a suspect in the University of Utah deadly shooting.
    Dale Brophy, Chief of Police for the University of Utah said the shooting happened when Boutain attempted to steal a car from an individual near Red Butte Gardens.
    “There was no relationship whatsoever that we can put together,” Brophy said in a press briefing around 1:50 a.m. Tuesday morning.
    Police reported that the suspect ran up into the hills east of the university following the shooting. Police believed that he was still hiding in the area. Boutain was considered armed and dangerous.

    The schools they gleefully publicize are (generally) "gun free" zones. That should tell both sides something, but only one side seems to understand the lesson here.

    Anyone trying to contain you in an area with a shooter is your enemy.

    Yeah. Whatever happened to "Run, Hide, Cry"? I think I got that phrase right. Isn't that what the leftists want you to do?

    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    Utah. So far as I know, it's lawful to carry on campus, with a CHL, either concealed or openly, or openly and unloaded without a CHL. (https://Handgunlaw.us/states/utah.pdf.)
