    I've got the scanner on and there is a shooter in the college. They are calling for the coroner and ambulances.

    It's going on right now. They have multiple victims and there are reports of shots being fired now in the library and multiple shooting sites. All officers in the area are being recalled to the university, and all traffic in and out of the university is being stopped.

    I have the scanner on. They are calling in ambulances from surrounding suburbs. It took 15 minutes for them to get additional ambulances out. Not sure why so long when they said multiple victims. I'll keep updating as I hear.

    I know that they said there were reports of shots being fired from the library. Earlier they said shooter was dead, but then they said there were multiple shooting sites.

    This is the campus alert on their website. http://www.niu.edu/alert/campus_alert.shtml

    I know that the Illinois state universities have a great emergency system in place where all students are immediately emailed when any crime occurs on campus. Hopefully, the system will help save lives.
