NIU Shooting Hits Another Anniversary

Posted by wlpo on February 14, 2011

Wreaths were laid Monday at Northern Illinois University to mark the third anniversary of a campus shooting that killed five students.

Just after three o’clock on February 14th, 2008, former NIU student Steven Kazmierczak opened fire in Cole Hall, killing five students before shooting himself.  Among the students killed was 32-year old Julianna Gehant of Meriden, just outside of Mendota.

Gehant was an Army veteran who was studying to become an elementary teacher.  She was a 1994 graduate of Mendota High School.
