The day after a gunman killed a man on Purdue University’s campus in Indiana there is a gunman loose on the University of Oklahoma campus. Sooners basketball player James Fraschilla, who is famous for his trick shot videos, was in the building where the shooting occurred. He tweeted about the events on his Twitter account.
Gunman in the building I have class in… just sprinted out. Cops everywhere.

The school confirmed the shooting on their Twitter account and advised students and faculty to seek immediate shelter in place.
Shooting on campus. Avoid Gould Hall. Seek immediate shelter in place.

Everyone on the Oklahoma campus has the prayers of the FanSided staff.
Just days earlier, Fraschilla had released another trick shot video. He is regarded as some as the best trick-shot artist. He does it all for a good purpose as well, his videos help raise money for Hayden’s Hope, a foundation dedicated to raising awareness for pediatric organ donation and raising money to cover transplant-related expenses.
He doesn’t do it for his personal financial gain.
