A University of Minnesota student was shot in the back while entering a residence hall between 11:00 and 11:30pm on Monday night.
The Minnesota Daily reported that the student was returning from the Rec Center when the incident occurred. The victim was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, where officials say he is expected to undergo surgery and survive.
The shooting occurred after the suspects attempted to rob two female students near Moos Tower before retreating towards the residential hall.
First-year student Nick Furey told the Minnesota Daily that he was in the Centennial Hall lobby when the Victim approached him. Furey said, "the kid walks up to me probably 20 seconds after I heard the gunshots and he looks at me with this blank face...He pulls up his shirt and he goes 'I think I got shot' and he's just spewing blood from his stomach."
Campus Police Chief Greg Hestness said that a third incident off-campus has been tied to the suspects, but had no further details, the Star Tribune reported.
No arrests have been made at this time, but campus police are hoping the many surveillance cameras around campus may provide them with some leads.
