IOWA CITY, Iowa - A wreath has been set outside Van Allen Hall to mark 22 years since a shooting took the lives of six people, including the gunman, at the University of Iowa.

On November 1, 1991, Gang Lu, a 28-year-old former graduate student, open fired in a conference room on the third floor of the building. The shooting took the lives of four faculty members and one student. Lu later turned the gun on himself.

The university places a new wreath near a memorial stone outside the building every year to honor the victims.
