Financial aid director at St. Louis college wounded by armed student

From The St. Louis Post-Dispatch: A student with a violent past, a mental disability and a handgun wounded an official at the Stevens Institute of Business & Arts in downtown St. Louis and then shot himself. The alleged attacker, Sean Johnson, 34, and Greg Elsenrath, the financial aid director at the career college, were seriously hurt and taken to an area hospital. Police say Elsenrath is expected to survive; Johnson remained in critical condition. A source says that Johnson had been upset, but not threatening, in a meeting Monday with Elsenrath over losing his student aid.
