Conn. College Student Shot Dead

Scary news from central Connecticut: A student at Wesleyan University has been killed at a popular bookstore near campus. The unnamed student, a woman, was pronounced dead at Middletown Hospital after being shot several times Wednesday afternoon; she was not identified pending notification of her family. The Middletown Press reports the gunman is the victim’s ex-boyfriend; a wig has been recovered from the crime scene at the Red and Black Café, inside Broad Street Books. “It was focused. This wasn’t random from what I can tell,” the town’s mayor says of the shooting. “Somebody went into a bookstore and fired multiple shots at one person.” A gun was recovered at the scene; the gunman, however, remains at large.
