Thursday marked the 5th anniversary of the campus shootings at Northern Illinois University. Scores of people, including NIU leaders, Governor Pat Quinn, and many first responders, gathered at the campus memorial site to remember the five students who lost their lives that day.

Gayle Dubowski, Catalina Garcia, Julianna Gehant, Ryanne Mace and Daniel Parmenter died and 21 others were injured when a lone gunman opened fire inside Cole Hall on February 14th 2008.
