Shooting at Arkansas State University Leaves one Student Injured

JONESBORO, AR -- An overnight shooting leaves one person injured.

 

The incident happened around 1:00 a.m. on Saturday Morning on the campus of Arkansas State University

 

“One of our student organizations was having a party at the pavilion at the pond on campus and shots were fired at the close at the party,” said Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, Dr. Lonnie Williams.

 

The name, age, and gender of the student are not being released at this time because the incident is still under investigation.  We do, however, know the condition of the student.

 

“A student was wounded, was sent to the hospital, and has been released from the hospital,” said Williams.

 

The party was being sponsored by the Phi Beta Sigma fraternity.

 

A shooting on campus at A.S.U. is very rare, especially because of its policy on weapons.

   

“The university does not allow any weapons of any kind on campus at all.  We are now going through an investigation of the incident and if the perpetrator is found they will be prosecuted with criminal charges,” said Williams.
