Portland State University President Rahman Shoureshi has asked the campus public safety chief to have an internal review of the shooting, as well as the school’s policy and procedures.
“Campus safety is our top priority at PSU,” Shoureshi said in a statement. “As you know, we are an urban campus, and that presents challenges.”
He said the school tries to provide a “safe and welcoming” environment on campus. The Portland Police Bureau is investigating the shooting.
The Portland State University Student Union said students opposed giving campus officers firearms when they started carrying in 2014. The group intends to continue to push for the removal of firearms from campus police.
