One injured as man opens fire in UC Berkeley building

A man opened fire inside a UC Berkeley campus building on Tuesday, injuring one person before being arrested. The injured person is not believed to have life-threatening injuries.

It’s not clear exactly how the shooting happened, but a campus alert was issued at around 3pm after reports that someone had opened fire inside a building. It’s not known what type of weapon was used, or whether the victim was specifically targeted.

Protesters calling for a reduction in tuition fees were holding a demonstration at the time, about half a mile away in a campus plaza. There’s no indication so far that the shooting was in any way linked to the demonstration.

One thought on “One injured as man opens fire in UC Berkeley building

  1. Wrong… A man did not “open fire” in a building injuring one before being arrested. Rather, a man had a gun in a campus building, POLICE opened fire and wounded the man with the gun (who never shot a single bullet).
