In one of the strangest shooting cases, a disguised gunman fatally shot Johanna Justin-Jinich, a Wesleyan University student. The incident took place within a popular bookstore near the university campus on the 6th of May, 2009. At the time of shooting Johanna Justin-Jinich was working in the Red and Black Cafe inside the store Broad Street Books. According to the sources, after shooting the disguised man escaped into the busy downtown area but he left behind his wig.

Soon after the incident took place the police made a thorough search of the downtown area. They were equipped with dogs and assault ammunitions as they went out looking for the alleged shooter, early Wednesday afternoon. The police have announced that though there is no threat to the general public yet they have asked the Wesleyan students to stay “extra vigilant” and indoors.

The police have released a photo of the shooter and have identified him to be 29-year-old Stephen Morgan. However, the authorities are not yet sure about what he does or where he lives. Moreover, they are also no sure of the possible connection between Stephen Morgan and Johanna Justin-Jinich. Police Lt. Margaret Liseo made a startling revelation that they had found some interesting evidence at the scene that “heightened our level of concern,” but she has refused to give details.

Johanna Justin-Jinich, of Timnath, Colo was pronounced dead when she was brought into the hospital. The authorities of Wesleyan University held a counseling session on Wednesday where they mentioned that the incident was “a devastating loss for Johanna’s family, friends, and for the entire Wesleyan Community.”
