A defenseless college employee was murdered in a targeted attack in a campus bathroom by a known assailant who is now on the run.
The school’s “gun free zone” failed to save the employee’s life.
A long-time employee at Wayne Community College in Goldsboro was shot and killed Monday morning in the bathroom of the third floor of a campus building, sending the campus into a lockdown as officials scrambled to find the suspect.
At a noon news conference, school officials said “law enforcement is searching for the suspect.”
Officials said they were looking for a man named Kenneth Stancil. They said there was “not a hostage situation”
“This is not a random situation,” said Tom Effler of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office,
The person killed was long-time employee named Ron Lane.
Our prayers go out to Mr Lane’s family and friends.
The suspect, Stancil, was identified through surveillance photos or video. He is a former student who did not graduate. He was armed with a rifle, and fired a single shot after he cornered Lane in the bathroom.
