CHILLING surveillance footage has captured the movements of a suspected shooter just moments after his deadly rampage.
Anthony McRae is believed to have killed three people and critically injured five others at Michigan State University on Monday.
Cops said McRae opened fire before leading officers on a manhunt that ended in his death from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His body was found around four miles from the campus in Lansing.
Officers have said he has no link to the university.
Chilling surveillance images showed the assailant prowling the streets following the rampage, FOX2 revealed.
The shooter was wearing a denim jacket and a navy baseball cap.
His face seemed to be covered and he was wearing a backpack.
Michael McRae, the shooter’s father, revealed that his son’s demeanor and outlook on life changed after his mom Linda died from a stroke in September 2020.
He told NBC News: “Ever since my wife died, my son began to change. He was getting more and more bitter. Angry and bitter.”
Michael claimed: “He began to really let himself go.
“His teeth were falling out. He stopped cutting his hair. He looked like a wolf man.”
He revealed that McRae started becoming “evil and mean,” adding that he didn’t “care about anything anymore.”
Cops determined that the gunman opened fire at one of the school’s academic buildings and the student union.
Officers described the attack as a “senseless act of violence” and a “living nightmare” for all involved.
Investigators still have not identified the shooter’s motive as their probe continues.
MSU Deputy Chief Chris Rozman said: “The 43-year-old suspect had no affiliation to the school, he was not a student, staff, or faculty member.”
Three people have died following the shooting. They’ve been identified as Brian Fraser, Alexandria Verner, and Arielle Anderson.
They were all students at Michigan State University.
Two students were killed at Berkey Hall, while the third was shot dead at the student union.
Meanwhile, five were rushed to the hospital with critical injuries.
Alexandria’s high school principal John Shellenberger described the athlete as a “tremendous student.”
He said in a letter: “Alex was and is incredibly loved by everyone.
“She was a tremendous student, athlete, leader and exemplified kindness every day of her life!”
Will White told Bridge Michigan that Brian was a “gentleman.”
He said Brian “cared about his friends a lot. Like the best friend I could ever ask for, honestly.”
Arielle, 19, was the niece of former VH1 Flavor of Love winner Deelishis.
Deelishis revealed that the teen was in one of the classrooms when McRae allegedly opened fire.
MSU students caught up in the rampage escaped the deadly encounter by smashing classroom windows.
Student Claire Papoulias, 19, told CNN she was inside the classroom when the shooter opened fire.
The psychology sophomore said: “The teacher was presenting a lesson and all of a sudden, I heard gunshots directly behind me.
“That’s when the shooter opened the back classroom door and started firing at my classmates in the back, wounding them. I smelled and saw the gunpowder.”
Claire recalled that people started yelling “Shooter, everybody get down!”
She said the shooter fired three to four times in the classroom before leaving the room.
She admitted that she thought she was going to die.
Cops rushed to the scene after receiving reports of gunshots.
They searched for hours before finding his body off-campus.
MSU Police shared that a note was found on McRae’s body, which is being investigated.
McRae was previously sentenced to 18 months in state prison in November 2019 after being convicted of possessing a loaded firearm in a vehicle.
Court records seen by The U.S. Sun revealed that he was in jail until 2021.
