Officials: EMU Student Hurt In Off-Campus Shooting

Posted: Updated:

YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) - Officials say an Eastern Michigan University student was hit in the shoulder by a shot apparently fired randomly into the air from outside an off-campus apartment.

A crime alert from the Ypsilanti school says the woman was in her apartment when a projectile penetrated the outer wall, leaving her with a non-life threatening injury. She was treated at a hospital. Police say they received reports of multiple shots.

Ypsilanti police Detective Sgt. Tom Eberts tells The Ann Arbor News that police responded around 1:40 a.m. Tuesday to the shooting report.

The apartment is in the Peninsular Place complex, where two killings have been reported in the past year. One of the deaths was that of 23-year-old Eastern Michigan student Julia Niswender, whose December 2012 bathtub drowning was ruled a homicide.
