Pacific Lutheran University staff and students were briefly told to stay indoors Sunday, after a man with a gunshot wound walked into a convenience store a few blocks from campus.
The injured man, who was taken to the hospital, was not a student or staff member at PLU, Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said. His condition was not available Sunday.
Shortly after 2 p.m., the man walked into the ampm at 11908 Pacific Ave. S., Troyer said.
Deputies searched the area, and did not find any suspects.
Investigators had not yet determined the circumstances of the shooting.
The initial message to stay inside went out to campus cellphones shortly after 2 p.m., and about 2:30 p.m. another message was sent telling staff and students to resume normal operations.
