MANHATTAN, Kan. (KSNW) – Authorities are investigating a report of an accidental shooting in a residence hall at Kansas State University.
The Kansas State University Police Department was called to a student’s room in Goodnow Hall at 8:10 p.m. Sunday.
The student was transported for treatment and is in stable condition. The student’s wound was reported as self-inflicted.
Firearms aren’t currently allowed in campus buildings or residence halls, although that’s on track to change. Starting in July, a Kansas law will allow concealed guns on state college campuses unless a legislative effort to undo the law is successful.
Faculty and student organizations generally have been strongly opposed to concealed guns on campus, as have administrators.
