Campus police investigating discharge of firearm

Sacramento State Police are investigating the discharge of a firearm in a residence hall on campus today.

Just before noon, campus police received a report of a single gunshot on the second floor of Sierra Hall. Campus police responded within minutes and secured the scene. Upon investigation they found a bullet lodged in a wall.

No one was injured and no weapon was found at the scene. There were no witnesses to the incident. A student resident of the building is being sought for questioning. He is believed to have left campus.

Any one who has information on the situation is asked to contact University Police at (916) 278-6851.

The University’s primary concern is for the safety and security of students. Residence hall advisors were advised of the situation and are available to students to answer questions and deal with their concerns.

The second floor of Sierra Hall houses about 80 students, many of whom have already left for the weekend.

Family members of residence hall students who have questions can call Residential Life and Housing at (916) 278-6655. Over this weekend, calls can be directed to (916) 278-5352.

Media assistance is available by contacting the Sacramento State public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
