Shooting overnight on UALR campus

Posted By on Fri, May 6, 2011 at 8:17 AM

A student person was shot outside UALR's East Hall about 2:30 a.m. this morning, apparently after two students people brought a nightclub altercation on campus, Fox 16 reports. The suspect is being sought. The wound is not believed to be serious. UALR distributed a campus-wide message early this morning that there was no larger threat from the event.

UPDATE: Though the people involved were described as students in multiple initial reports, UALR now says neither was a student. The police report:

On 05-06-11 at 2:30 a.m., the University Police received a call that a person had been shot in front of East Hall. When officers arrived at the scene, they encountered a male that had been shot in the hip. The injuries were reported to be non- life-threatening. MEMS responded to the scene and took the victim to UAMS. The victim told responding officers that he had been shot by a person that he had been in an altercation with earlier that evening at a local nightclub. The victim was not a current UALR student. Video cameras in front of East Hall recorded images of the suspect. Further investigation by UALR detectives resulted in the suspect being identified. The suspect is not a student and has no apparent connection to the University. The investigation is still on-going.
