The Angry Ghost of Weber State
My mother didn't tell me many ghost stories when I was little, but Weber State University is one of the more haunted University campuses in Utah. The Social Science Building at Weber State University was the site of violent stand off between a student and the police. Apparently, a male student who was angry at his girlfriend thought the best way to express his anger would be to start shooting into her classroom. He started shooting and the police were callled. The police gunned the student down, but he has never really left. His ghost has stayed in the social science building and made it his own. Students still report hearing the sounds of gunshots at 1:30 every day. They also report seeing strange lights and hearing odd noises. Most of all, they describe feeling ill at ease, as if they were being watched. The shooter remains, watching over the students, holding onto his anger and waiting for a moment when he can vent his rage again.
