OutFront update: President Obama signed 23 gun control executive actions
Officials say a 21-year-old part-time student, armed with a reported handgun, entered the Stevens Institute of Business and Arts in St. Louis and opened fire.
Police say he shot an employee because of a disagreement over financial aid. He then turned the gun on himself.
Officials say both men are expected to survive.
But, the shooting comes just as President Barack Obama is about to make good on his promise to support new ways to curb gun violence.
On Wednesday, he's expected to embrace 19 steps he can take through executive action to bypass the powerful opposition in Congress.
OutFront tonight: CNN Contributor Reihan Salam and Michael Waldman is a former speechwriter for President Clinton.
Anyone who uses hyperbole like "tyranny," anyone who suggests that any one President– of either party– would "end America as we know it" displays a shocking lack of faith in the country we owe all of our lives to. Just think of 1968: we lost Dr. King, Bobby Kennedy, followed shortly thereafter by Watergate and about a decade where the powers that be did everything they could to put hate in our hearts...
Compared to that, we got it pretty good.
(Even with Congress as it is.)
