Michigan State lifted a shelter-in-place order that had been in place for students since around 8:30pm on Monday.

"There are three confirmed fatalities. This is in addition to the five victims who have been transported to the hospital,” campus police said on Twitter.
The shootings began shortly before 8:30pm at Berkey Hall, an academic building, and also occurred nearby at the student union, a popular gathering spot, said Chris Rozman, interim deputy chief of the campus police department.
Students were ordered to shelter in place for hours. Rozman urged parents to stay away.

"They’ve been hiding, all the lights off in a dark room,” Adams said. "Their cellphones are starting to lose battery charge. They don’t all have chargers with them and losing contact with the outside world is terrifying on a normal day for college kids, let alone when there’s someone out there that they haven’t caught yet.”
Aedan Kelley, a junior who lives a half-mile (less than a kilometer) east of campus, said he locked his doors and covered his windows "just in case.” Sirens were constant, he said, and a helicopter hovered overhead.
"It’s all very frightening," Kelley said. "And then I have all these people texting me wondering if I’m OK, which is overwhelming.”
Michigan State has about 50,000 students. All campus activities were canceled for 48 hours, including athletics and classes.
Police and the suspect exchanged fire, according to the Los Angeles Times. "The situation has been stabilized and there is no threat to the public," the Orange Police Department said in a post to their Facebook page.
