Nineteen others were wounded in Cole Hall, near the center of NIU's campus.
yesterday was a frigid day with snow beginning to accumulate. the snow began covering makeshift shrines of roses, stuffed bears and crosses placed near the granite markers outside of Cole Hall that bear the name of each victim.
The five walls are part of a Memorial Garden whose theme "Forward, Forever Forward" comes from the NIU Huskie fight song.
This is located just north of Lincoln Highway (Illinois Highway 38) in DeKalb, Illinois.
A Sad Commemoration.
