A University of Minnesota student was shot outside Centennial Dormitory Monday night.
The victim, Timothy Schumacher, was walking back from the recreational center around 11:00 p.m. when he heard two males make a comment. Upon turning around, Schumacher was shot in the abdomen.
Chuck Miner, deputy chief of the University of Minnesota Police Department said in a Minnesota Public Radio interview that it appears Schumacher did nothing to provoke the shooting.
Schumacher was sent to the Hennepin County Medical Center and is expected to survive.
According to the Minnesota Daily, police believe the shooting was apart of a string of crime related events committed by the two suspects.
"To have something happen in the middle of our campus like this is truly astounding and outrageous, and we want to make sure we do everything we can to make sure it doesn't happen again," said Jerry Rinehart, the university's vice provost for student affairs.
