Shooting at Kent State University


By News Department

KENT, OHIO (AP) -- A person suspected of firing a gun on the Kent State University campus in Ohio is now in custody.

A Kent State Spokeswoman said the male suspect fired the shot into the ground around 9 p.m., near the Bowman Hall academic building.

No injuries were reported.

The university initially advised people across campus to stay put while police searched for the shooter, who was believe to be carrying a silver handgun.

The campus was the site of deadly shootings by Ohio National Guard members during a Vietnam War protest in 1970.
