A Kent State University student was taken into custody following a shooting incident Wednesday night and will be arraigned on Friday.
According to WKYC, the suspect identified as Quavaugntay Tyler of Cleveland, is a freshman at the university. He has been charged with carrying a concealed weapon.
The Associated Press reported that campus police said that the 24-year-old shot himself in the hand during a domestic dispute with two women.
Authorities said that after reports of a single shot fired near Bowman Hall went out, the school was placed on lockdown.
Tyler was treated at a nearby hospital for his hand injury and taken into custody. No one else was hurt in the incident.
Police said that the student was the subject of a campus theft investigation and was on probation for a separate theft case.
KSU officials said that Tyler is a student in criminology and justice studies and his case could be evaluated for possible action under the school's student conduct rules.
