Cops Shoot Gunman at UC Berkeley

University of California, Berkeley students hold an "open university" strike in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement. (Max Whittaker/Getty Images)(BERKELEY, Calif.) -- Police shot and wounded a man holding a gun Tuesday on the University of California, Berkeley campus, where students and faculty were holding events in support of Occupy Cal, a school spokesman told ABC station KGO-TV in San Francisco.

The incident occurred inside Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, university spokesman Dan Mogulof said. Students and faculty were evacuated, but campus police later said it was an isolated incident and that students were not in danger.

Dozens of faculty and students took part in teach-ins at an outdoor plaza at the campus Tuesday, and a march was planned for the afternoon before a general assembly was to be held in the evening.

The events came after 40 Occupy Cal demonstrators were arrested last week when police broke up a tent city that had been established on the campus. A university spokesman would not say how the university would react if tents were set back up.
