NIU Remembers, Five Years Later
It was five years ago today that five Northern Illinois University students were murdered in a crowded classroom.
The gunman then turned his weapon on himself. WNIJ’s Susan Stephens remembers that day, and looks at how far the university has come since.
(WNIJ's Dan Klefstad, Guy Stephens, Bill Drake, and Christopher Hosken contributed audio for this report.)
And later today on All Things Considered, an exclusive interview with NIU President John Peters about moving on, five years after the campus shootings.
