Five days after shooting, North Lake College reopens

Classes resume after shooting on North Lake College campus

North Lake College in Irving reopened Monday morning, marking the first time students returned to campus after a gunman shot and killed a female student and then killed himself.

The shooting happened on campus last Wednesday while thousands of students were on school grounds.

Janeera Gonzalez, 20, was killed by a North Lake alum who Gonzalez's family say had been stalking her for some time.

School President Dr. Christa Slejko had counselors on hand Monday, which was also the start of finals week.

North Lake says it's looking at security protocol to see if policy needs to change going forward. 

A vigil will be held at 7:30 p.m. at Irving High School to honor Gonzalez.
