An Idaho State University instructor was wounded in the foot after a
concealed handgun in the person's pocket discharged during a chemistry
lab session with students in the room.
Police said the person had the proper permits to carry a concealed weapon on campus.
Idaho State University spokeswoman Adrienne King said there could be an administrative review after police complete their investigation.
King said the school has an alert system but didn't use it because
police quickly determined the shooting was an isolated incident.
"It's unfortunate," ISU President Arthur Vailas told the Idaho State
Journal. "I'm sure the incident was scary and embarrassing."
Despite opposition from every public university college president,
lawmakers passed legislation earlier this year allowing retired law
enforcement officers and people with concealed-carry permits to take
firearms onto public college and university campuses but not into
dormitories or stadiums.
Yeah, "scary and embarrassing," but given the extreme nonchalance with which this incident was met, don't expect the bumbling permit holder to be held accountable. It was just an accident.
