Weekend Shooting at KCKCC Student Housing
There was shooting on the KCKCC campus Saturday morning. Below is an e-mail to that KCKCC President Givens sent out to the campus regarding a shooting that appears to happen in one of the KCKCC student housing building.
The Wyanadotte Daily mentions the shooting but does not mention that it happened on KCKCC campus. I have not see a story about this in the other news outlet yet . . .
There is news that must be shared with you. I waited until information regarding the victim was available.
On Saturday morning, September 24th, at approximately 9:40AM, a 911 call was placed referencing shots fired at 7300 State Avenue, KC, KS, Building 800 (KCKCC Student Housing Complex). KCK Police and KCKCC Police arrived at the scene to find one male victim and one male suspect. The suspect was immediately apprehended. The victim and suspect were both transported to a local hospital. There were no other individuals involved or injured in this incident
KCKCC administrators arrived immediately, organized counseling sessions, and invited students who live in student housing to join us in Lower Level Jewell. The students came, talked with a counselor and expressed their concerns. The latest information is that the victim came out of surgery yesterday afternoon and remains in stable condition.
Our heartfelt prayers are with our student victim of this tragic shooting and his family who are with him. We are hopeful for a complete recovery. All questions should be directed to Dr. Delfina Wilson, Dean, Student Services.
