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.
