Police are searching for a man suspected of shooting another man in the arm outside of Summit Hall early this morning according to a CSU Safety Alert.
The victim, who reported to police that the alleged shooter approached him in search of drugs, was not a student. A safety alert was released at 4:20 a.m. today following the report. There were no other victims and no fatalities.
The victim,21, did not seek medical attention after the incident, said Dell Rae Moellenberg, spokeswoman for the university, in an e-mail.
The victim traveled back to his Broomfield home and alerted the local police station several hours after the shooting.
The suspect, who has not been named at this time, was last seen running north toward James Court from Summit Hall shortly after midnight.
An updated safety report described the alleged shooter as a black male wearing a striped light blue flannel shirt with multi-colored stripes and a red-brimmed hat. He is described to be around 5â€™7â€ and younger than 21 years old.
Students are urged to take extra caution until the suspect is located and CSUPD will be performing extra patrols throughout the day. Classes will continue as scheduled and all offices will remain open.
Any information regarding the incident should be immediately reported to CSUPD.
