U.S. Campus Security Scrutinized In Wake Of Virginia Tech Tragedy

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Classes at the University of California, Berkeley are resuming after campus police shot a man who allegedly brandished a gun at the university’s business school.

The shooting occurred at 2:22 p.m. Tuesday at a computer lab at the Haas School of Business, as Occupy Cal protesters rallied less than half a mile away.

Police said there was no immediate indication the suspect was connected to the protest.

Officers located the man after a staff member reported seeing him remove a gun from his backpack.

Police said the suspect, who has not been identified, raised his gun, prompting an officer to open fire.

He was taken to Highland Hospital in Oakland. His condition was not immediately known.

The shooting prompted officials to cancel the day’s remaining classes.
