Trib: UI’s Ho-Hum Shooting Response

You can be reasonably certain when the University of Idaho and Moscow Police will not trigger an alert: When someone fires a gun at a dormitory. When he flees the scene. And when for hours, if not days, nobody knows where he is -- or who he is. So it went Sunday. Somebody fired a .45-caliber gun at Targhee Fine Arts Hall, a small dormitory filled with art and architecture students. A bullet crashed through a window, struck a ceiling fixture and then bounced back down into a a cinder block wall. Miraculously, it intercepted no human along the way/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.

Question: In light of the murder-suicide involving former assistant professor Ernesto Bustamante, shouldn't the University of Idaho have a better response to shooting situations than this?
