Northern Illinois student shot in leg

Posted:

DEKALB, Ill - A fight led to the shooting of a student at Northern Illinois University early Friday morning.

Someone shot a student in the leg outside a residence hall.

Security locked down campus until police caught the accused shooter a short time later.

The shooting comes less than a week after NIU marked the two-year anniversary of a campus shooting that killed five students, before the gunman shot himself.

NIU's president says Friday classes are as scheduled, but counseling services are available to students, faculty and staff.
