Members of the Far Eastern University community are in shock and mourning over the shooting of three students right outside its campus on Tuesday evening. All three students were members of the FEU Green Bisons, the school's official cheerdrummers. Two died from the shooting, the third is reportedly on the way to recovery.

One of the students killed was a Sangguniang Kabataan chairman in Binondo, Manila. On Tuesday, the day of the attack, he was celebrating his 21st birthday. Police have yet to establish the motive behind the shootings, but said they are looking into the possibility that a fraternity war may be behind the attack.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, FEU students, teachers, and alumni took to social media to express disgust and sadness over the latest round of violence to descend on the school. Below, we've collected some of their tweets and Facebook posts:
