    All the shots were fired inside the building. PSP said 'dozens' of shots were fired.

    Suspect(s) still at large. They do not believe there is a current threat to the community. Names of the victims have not been released.
    It’s not that big inside. It has a foyer area with a stairway downstairs to the restrooms otherwise it’s just a room. It’s a wonder more were not hit.

    The point is these "mass" shootings are not so radically unusual but are wildly publicized in the information age. In times past they were ignored because of who the victims were. No one cared how many gangsters or poor died as long as the middle class weren't involved. In a similar way heroin related deaths didn't matter because of who was usiing and dying. But when fentanyl reached the suburbs it's a national catastrophe.. As the stats indicate per capita gun deaths have ranged from 5.5-7.5 for many decades. Oddly suicides by gun are a much bigger issue and are rarely mentioned since there isn't a spectacular news angle to play up.
    The frequency has increased exponentially.

    I referenced mass shootings which is defined as at least 4 people shot.

    But, as two victims are IUP students, it will be linked.
    Right. It’s nowhere near campus. However, they did tout it as an “Official” IUP Homecoming After Party, although that’s what the organizers called it. It was not affiliated with IUP other than it being tied to homecoming. Here’s the link to the event: https://happeningnext.com/event/offi...eid4so5efm8tg1

    It was $33 to enter. It also says “Security will be present for the safety of our audience. No BS tolerated.” Well, so much for that.

    Anybody know how many punts IUP has had blocked in the past 3 years? It has to be a big number (maybe one of the highest in D2).

    How does this keep happening (for you X's and O's folk) ?

    I know somebody screwed something up. There has to be more to it ... formations, punter too slow, etc.

    Any thoughts?

    He didn’t do enough at IUP.

    If it was homecoming related it wasn’t on campus. Not even close to campus really. I don’t know how I didn’t hear three helicopters coming in because this is .5 miles from my house and basically adjacent to Indiana High School. Reliable updates are hard to find but apparently two suspects were driving west on Route 22 (toward Pittsburgh for what it’s worth) in a gray sedan. I’m not sharing any personal descriptions because I can’t speak to the reliability of the information.
    I think something similar happened at IUP Homecoming weekend several years ago, but this has happened at several schools Homecoming weekends. Unaffiliated individual rents a hall and throws a party targeting students & alumni of certain orgs. Gets out of control. People injured.

    Currently 2 victims who were wounded are IUP students. There may be more. Also there is likely more than 1 shooter. Of course it’s all preliminary and may change. The person killed was from Pittsburgh.
