Shooting at UALR -- UPDATE

Posted By on Wed, Feb 27, 2008 at 4:52 PM

A male student was shot at 2:20 p.m. today in a parking lot at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and has been taken by ambulance to an area hospital, a spokesman for the school said. The two shooters fled the campus in a Chevrolet, a campus e-mail bulletin said. Students were warned via a campuswide alert system to stay away from the area, and the campus has been under lockdown since, though a receptionist in the chancellor's office said lockdown was over.

The UALR spokesperson didn't know the severity of the wound. She also didn't know if the shooters were students.

UPDATE: Chancellor Joel Anderson has cancelled classes this evening. His statement:

“After having reviewed the situation with my leadership team, I have decided to cancel classes tonight.  Our concerns today are for the young man and his family and for the safety and sense of security of all members of the UALR community.  Although there appears every reason to believe the incident and any threats related to it are over, I believe cancellation of evening classes is appropriate.  Classes will resume on schedule tomorrow morning."
