Shooting at Harvard

The Harvard Crimson reports that an unidentified African American college-aged man was shot in the basement of Kirkland House, one of the campus dormitories. The victim was still conscious after the shooting, according to a student who helped the man. An unnamed university official confirmed to the Crimson that the man was not a student. House Master Tom Conley said two to three suspects fled the scene after the "targeted shooting." Students said they heard three noises that sounded like gunshots around 5:00 pm. "We ask everyone to cooperate with the police and staff in the hours ahead," the dorm's House Masters wrote in an email. "We will apprise everyone of further developments."
