College president says campus safe after shooting

TUESDAY, OCT. 28, 2008

CONWAY, Ark. – A shooting that left two students dead at the University of Central Arkansas did not appear to be random, authorities said Monday as the school’s president pronounced the campus secure.

Three people are being questioned but no one has been charged in Sunday night’s shooting, which wounded a third person at the 12,500-student campus.

Though investigators have not determined a motive for the shooting, “It does not seem at this time that it was a random act,” campus police Lt. Preston Grumbles said.

Interim president Tom Courtway canceled classes Monday but said they would resume today. “Our campus is safe,” he said.
