FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Students and staff at Ivy Tech Community College held a moment of silence Thursday in honor of the nine people killed in a mass shooting at an Oregon college last week.
The moment of silence was held at 2 p.m. at Ivy Tower Plaza between Harshman Hall and the Student Life Center, the college said. Students and staff were also encouraged to observe the moment of silence in offices or classrooms.
The moment of silence was in remembrance of those killed Oct. 1, when a gunman opened fire at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon.
