Dekalb, Ill. (AP) Florida authorities and a university official have identified the gunman in the Northern Illinois University slayings as 27-year-old former student Steven Kazmierczak.
Polk county, Fla., Sheriff's officials said they were asked to speak with ``the father of the shooting suspect,'' a man who lives in Lakeland, Fla., and was identified as Robert Kazmierczack.
The suspect is the younger Kazmierczak, a university source told the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the identity has not been released by police.
