SUSPECT IN DELAWARE STATE
SHOOTING EXPELLED FROM UNIVERSITY
DOVER, Del. (AP) - The suspect in the shooting of 2 students on the
Delaware State University campus has been expelled by the school.
Delaware State spokesman Carlos Holmes says 18-year-old Loyer Braden violated the university's zero-tolerance
policy for guns on campus. Holmes says having a firearm on campus results in "automatic expulsion." He notes that Braden admitted
to police that he fired shots into the air.
Braden is charged with attempted first-degree murder, first-degree
assault, reckless endangerment and possession of a firearm during a felony.
He's accused of shooting two 17-year-old freshmen, Shalita Middleton
and Nathaniel Pugh, on the campus September 21st.
The gun has not been found.
