Campus police said shots were fired about 11:15 p.m. Saturday from a room in the Jayhawker Towers. A 47-year-old Wisconsin woman was in the dorm's courtyard about the same time and reported being shot in the arm with a plastic BB. The woman suffered minor injuries, according to the newspaper.
Morris is also suspected of using alcohol during the incident.
Officers seized a 3-foot-long black Airsoft rifle and a medium-sized plastic bag of BBs.
"We take this matter very seriously," Self told the Journal-World on Wednesday. "Poor judgment was used by bringing an Airsoft gun, (one) that can be purchased at Wal-Mart, on campus that can shoot plastic BBs."
Ya see, this is how they assure job security. An airsoft fun isn't a BB-gun. BB's are copper, copper clad, little METAL projectiles, and referring to someone using an AIRSOFT toy as "shots were fired" is beyond the realm of idiotic.
Of course this kid is a dope. But you slap him on the wrist for scaring the eloi then go about your business. And, what sort of "injuries", minor or otherwise, could this woman have incurred?
