Shooting reported at Harvard

The Harvard Crimson is reporting that a "college aged" man was shot in Kirkland House, one of Harvard's dorms, this evening. House Master Tom Conley stated that the victim was brought to the hospital where he remains in stable condition.

The shooting occurred around 5 p.m. Since then Kirkland House members received an email from Conley and a text message alert was sent to student subscribers informing them of the incident and asking for cooperation with police and staff. The area around Kirkland House has been blocked off by police and students.
This comes less than two weeks after the murder of Wesleyen junior Johanna Justin-Jinich.
