Statement regarding the September 12 campus shooting incident

St. Catherine University statement regarding the September 12 campus shooting incident

Last night, September 12, at approximately 9:25 p.m. there was a shooting of one of our public safety officers on campus in the woods near Cleveland Avenue. The officer suffered a wound to his shoulder, was seen and released at Regions Hospital, and is expected to make a full recovery.

The St. Paul Police Department placed the campus on lock-down while a campus-wide and building-to-building search was conducted. Public Safety and the President's Office communicated with the campus community via text messaging and email throughout this four-hour ordeal.

No one was apprehended and this remains an open and active investigation by the St. Paul Police Department.

Campus has resumed all activities. Students have been encouraged by President Becky Roloff and Provost Alan Silva to alert their faculty if they need accommodation for their academic schedule due to stress and disruption over the last 12 hours. Counselors are available.
