Three students were killed and five others were injured, according to officials.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer ordered U.S. and Michigan flags to be lowered to half-staff on Tuesday, February 14, to honor the victims.

“The whole state of Michigan is wrapping its arms around the Spartan community today,” said Gov. Whitmer, in remarks released via a press release on Tuesday.

“MSU’s campus is a special place for so many that is now the site of a tragic and senseless act of violence,” she also said. “I’m heartbroken for the victims and every student, parent, faculty, and MSU staff member affected by last night’s events.”

She thanked law enforcement, first responders, and medical professionals who were on the scene.

We must work together to end this gun violence,” she added, “that claims the lives of too many Americans and upends the lives of countless others every day.”

Many faith leaders on Tuesday shared their thoughts about the shooting, and many offerings prayers and counsel to those affected, as well as Americans across the nation.

Walker Wildmon, CEO of the American Family Association Action in Tupelo, Mississippi, said that “America is in a state of moral decline at a faster pace than many of us would have predicted.”

He added, “This tragic shooting in Michigan is just another reminder that evil exists and that we are all in desperate need of a higher power to rescue us.”

He said that “that higher power is Jesus Christ, the son of God. May our nation wake up from this moral spiral and turn ourselves to God for salvation.”

Alex McFarland, a youth, culture, and religion expert based in Greensboro, North Carolina, said in comments shared with Fox News Digital that “the shooter must have become hopeless in a world he felt is meaningless, and this led to a horrible, deadly result.”

However, he added, “with the God of the Bible, there is hope. With Christ, we have everything we will ever need — hope, purpose, a clear compass of right and wrong. How desperate it is for our nation to return to these things.”

Additionally, Ryan Bomberger, co-founder of The Radiance Foundation, told Fox News on Tuesday, “We hate violence, in and out of the womb. When places we should regard as safe are turned into environments of death, we rightfully want answers.”

He added, “It’s hard to grasp the careless disregard of human life by those who carry out such wicked acts of brutality. Anthony McRae, the killer who committed suicide, will never face justice for the slaughter of yet more innocent human lives.”

Bomberger also commented, “We won’t stop praying for healing for families and friends devastated, praying for wisdom in addressing evil, and praying that we learn to love one another more.”

The gunman who killed three people is Anthony Dwayne McRae, 43. He had no ties to the university and was later found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
