An unknown number of individuals entered the locked campus and took shots at 10 overhead light fixtures and six windows as well as buildings between Quad 2 and Quad 4.

“Some items were repaired immediately Monday morning when campus opened,” Dr.Ryan Theule, Dean of the Canyon Country campus said.

Windows at the ASG Student Lounge and Computer Lab (bungalow 204-205) as well as the classroom windows of bungalow 400-401 were broken.BulletHoles

“Any time there is an incident of vandalism or otherwise, campus safety, facilities, custodial and staff is involved. With their help, we relocated classes while windows were repaired,” Theule said.

There have been increased patrols to the campus especially during off hours as well as other security measures to prevent something like this from happening again.
