TULSA - Classes resume Monday at Spartan College of Aeronautics after last week's shooting death of one of the students.
Chaz Fain, 18, was shot at a party Thursday night in an apartment near the school. Three other students were also injured in the shooting.
All four were shot inside the Spartan Landing Apartments just yards away from the school. The suspect, 41-year-old Mark Hopkins, was also a student at Spartan and was the roommate of two of the surviving victims.
Police have not released a motive.
School was canceled Friday, but class is back in session Monday, and school officials have made counselors available for students and staff. President Jeremy Gibson says the school is committed to helping those affected by this tragedy.
Fain, a member of the U.S. Air Force, grew up in north Florida. He recently moved to Tulsa to attend school.
Michelle Futch, Fain's former teacher, said he was a standout football player and champion weightlifter.
"We don't have things like this happen and for him to be murdered, that just doesn't happen," she said.
Friends at his old high school have started a Facebook page, asking people to wear red in his honor.
