College Shooting in Florida Leaves Questions, 3 Wounded

Three Bethune-Cookman University students were grazed by bullets in a campus parking lot.

Three students were “grazed by” bullets on the campus of a university outside Orlando on Monday evening.

The shooting occurred in a parking lot of Bethune-Cookman University that separates the music building from the football team’s practice field, reports the Orlando Sentinel. One student was grazed in the ear while dropping to the ground, another was grazed in the right knee and the third was grazed in the shoulder, requiring stitches.

Two other men, including one student, were briefly detained, but police say they were not involved in the shooting and have no witnesses. Police have not made any arrests. School officials and local law enforcement are offering a $10,000 reward for information about this shooting, reports WESH.

University spokeswoman Beverly James says the students and campus are safe, and the school president plans to talk with students and faculty at a town hall meeting today.
