KENT, Ohio – A shot fired at Kent State University Wednesday that sent the campus into lockdown stemmed from a domestic dispute between the suspect and two women, Kent State Police said this morning.
Kent police arrested 24-year-old Quavaugntay Tyler, a freshman, after they said he pulled out a gun and accidentally shot himself in the hand during an argument with two women. He was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and is expected to be arraigned Thursday afternoon.
Reports of a single shot being fired near Bowman Hall on the KSU main campus went out around 8:45 p.m. Wednesday.
According to Executive Director of University Media Relations Eric Mansfield, the campus is back to regular operations.
School officials held a press conference at 11 a.m. Thursday, identifying Tyler, who is on probation on a theft charge in Brimfield, and detailing the investigation and security efforts by law enforcement officers.

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
