U of I Student Shoots Himself in Dorm Room


The University of Idaho campus is a rather somber scene this morning.

Campus police confirmed Sunday that an 18-year-old male student died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the Wallace Complex on the Moscow campus.

Moscow law enforcement received a medical call at 8:45 a.m. Saturday, shortly after the student was found dead in his dormitory room. The initial police report indicated that no other students were in the dorm room at the time of the death.

If you or someone you know is in emotional distress or suicidal crisis, call 1-800-273-TALK.
