August 17, 2009

Five people were injured and five were arrested in a shooting incident early Sunday morning at Langston University, NewsOK reported. At around the same time, in another incident, there was another injury and arrest when a woman used her car to hit another person. None of the incidents apparently involved Langston students. A statement from the university said: "Langston University President JoAnn Haysbert says she is appalled and utterly disappointed by these acts of violence. 'We will pursue this to the fullest extent of the law,' President Haysbert said. 'Oklahoma law prohibits weapons and firearms from being carried on state property by unauthorized individuals.' "
