    Bad: Graduate Student Commits Suicide in Professor's Office

    Not a lot of details just yet. Perhaps some sort of grade dispute?

    Fox News
    TEMPE, Ariz. Arizona State University police say a graduate student fatally shot himself in a professor's office.

    ASU police commander James Hardina says the shooting occurred about 11:40 a.m. Monday.

    Police say the student was apparently talking with a professor when he pulled out a gun and shot himself once in the architecture Design South Building on ASU's main campus in Tempe.

    The name of the student has not been released.

    Hardina says there is no further threat to ASU students or faculty.

    ASU spokeswoman Julie Newberg says the Design South Building is closed until further notice.

    Sorry, don't have much remorise for the suicide type.

    But if someone would have told him guns were not allowed on campus it might have saved his life.

    All my cousins go to ASU in Tempe. I wonder if any of them know the guy. Sad story.

    ...he pulled out a gun and shot himself once in the architecture Design South Building...

    I wonder if that leaves a mark, on the building?
    I'm just sayin'...


    A permanent solution to a temporary problem, oh well.

    A very unfortunate and poor way to go. No good can come out of this for gun owners.

    Actually, that's one less person buying ammo.

    Seriously though, as senseless and sad as it is, I don't see what bad light it shines on gun owners. At least it wasn't a murder/suicide and he was a good shot. The ones I feel for are his parents and any siblings he might've had.
    There's no way to stop someone from committing suicide if that's what one decides to do. Whether they jump off a building, off an overpass or in front of a car it usually can't be stopped.

    Hmm. I took a class in that building when I was at ASU. I don't think I know anyone who has an office there now though.
