UA Calls Dorm Shooting a "Teaching Moment" Featured

Written by

University of Akron officials are calling a frightening, and potentially more severe, incident that led to the brief lockdown of the campus more than a week ago a "teaching moment," that all students can learn from.

In the early morning hours of November 10th, a gun went off in a dorm in the Exchange Street Residence Hall. Two teens from Bedford, who were let in by two University of Akron students, were involved in the incident; one of them, a 17-year-old had the gun that accidentally went off and shot the second man, a 19-year-old.

Now, the two students who let those two non-UA students into the dorms, are barred from UA dorms and are charged with obstructing justice.

Reports are those students lied about letting the others in, but security cameras caught them doing just that.
