Cal State San Bernardino student fatally shot by campus police

A graduate student was shot and killed by California State University, San Bernardino police during a fight in an off-campus dorm.

San Bernardino police Lt. Paul Williams told KABC-TV that the campus police officers went to the dorm Saturday evening after receiving reports of a disturbance.

He said when the officers confronted a man in the dorm's hallway, a fight erupted. The man was identified as a 38-year-old graduate student, according to NBC Southern California.

"The altercation became physical and the subject became violent. Sometime during that, the officers feared for their safety," Williams told KABC-TV. "They discharged their weapon, striking the subject."

He said that when the officers confronted the male student in the dorm's hallway, a fight erupted and that the officers fired their weapons when they feared for their safety.

Williams said one officer was taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

The San Bernardino Police department was investigating the circumstances that led to the shooting.
