Missouri Valley College and the Marshall community has been on high alert since a shooting incident on October 3 that led to the campus being put on lock down twice. 

According to information released by the Marshall Police Department, the initial incident was reported around 11:10 a.m. when emergency responders were called to a house on Olson Ave. First responders found three people suffering from gunshot wounds.

At 12:18 p.m., Marshall Police Department received information of a second shooting which happened at a residence on West Vest Street. The victim of this apparent gunshot walked into Fitzgibbon Hospital for treatment.  

At the time, the Marshall police department issued a statement reading: “A 41 year old man has been identified as a person of interest, Terrell Palmer. At the time of this release Terrell Palmer has not been located. Terrell Palmer is described as 6 feet tall weighing 170 pounds.”  

The Marshall Police Department recently announced that the suspect has been apprehended in Mississippi. 

Palmer is a Marshall native and  many people in the community have seen him around the town for years. One professor taught at the Marshall High School while Palmer attending school. 

“I know of Mr. Palmer, but not that well.” said Professor Harry Carrell. “But things like that rarely happens in Marshall that is why we were in shock. You can never predict a student or former student doing anything like that or that amount of trouble.”

The Marshall Police Department says Palmer is waiting to be extradited back to Missouri.
