[ARCHIVED] Interim City Manager Randy Talifarro Provides Statement in Response to Shooting on MSU Campus


EAST LANSING, Mich. — In response to tonight’s shooting on the MSU campus, Interim East Lansing City Manager Randy Talifarro has released the following statement:
 “The City of East Lansing is mourning the devastating shooting that occurred on the campus of Michigan State University tonight. Our hearts go out to all of the victims of this horrific act of violence as well as their family and friends. East Lansing and MSU have always shared in each other’s victories and each other’s losses. Tonight, we hold space while we grapple with this devastating loss of life together. 
 We extend our gratitude to our brave first responders who quickly responded to MSU’s campus. Against every natural instinct they ran towards the sound of danger, seeking not their own wellbeing, but instead to protect and serve those in need. And we stand shoulder to shoulder with everyone impacted by tonight’s events. Please know that you’re not alone in your grief. We stand with you and will be here as we seek to heal as a community.”

Community members are advised that City of East Lansing offices will be closed to the general public on Tuesday, Feb. 14. Buildings and offices that will be closed include East Lansing City Hall, the East Lansing Public Library, East Lansing Prime Time, the East Lansing 54B District Court and the East Lansing Department of Public Works. The East Lansing Hannah Community Center will have a delayed opening at 8 a.m. and drop-in counseling services will be available to MSU students, faculty, staff and their families beginning at 9 a.m. 

Essential City of East Lansing employees will be reporting to work.
