Mendota woman remembered at NIU shooting anniversary

Posted by wlpo on February 16, 2016

While many were going out to dinner celebration Valentine’s Day, others gathered at Northern Illinois University to mark the eight anniversary of a campus shooting that left five students dead.

Thirty-two-year-old Juliana Gehant of Mendota was one of the victims. She was a junior at the time of the shooting, majoring in Elementary Education. She had served 12 years in the U.S. Army and Army Reserves.

Family members of Gehant and the other victims gathered Sunday at the NIU campus as bells rang at 3:06 p.m., the time a gunman opened fire in a lecture hall classroom.
