In a campus wide email, Campus Safety informed students that a fatal shooting had taken place early Sunday morning in the parking lot next to the Seminary St. Pub.
A post on the Galesburg Police Department FaceBook page stated that Jenni M. McGruder, 26, of Galesburg was shot around 1:37 a.m. and pronounced dead at the scene by the county coroner. The suspect had not been apprehended by 8:07 a.m. when the post was made.
The email asked any students with information about the shooting to contact Campus Safety at (309)341-7979 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or to GPD at (309)343-9151.
