Man Shot at Harvard

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) - A man has been shot near a Harvard
University dormitory.

Authorities say the man was wounded Monday afternoon outside an
entrance to Kirkland House, one of a dozen dorms on the
university's campus in the Boston suburb of Cambridge. He's
hospitalized in stable condition.

Police say it's unclear if he's a student.

A witness tells The Harvard Crimson daily student newspaper the
victim appeared to be "college-aged" and was bleeding but
conscious.

Kirkland House administrators have sent an e-mail to students
informing them of the shooting and asking them to cooperate with
police and staff.

The university says the shooting appears to be an "isolated"
incident. It says Kirkland House residents are being asked to
remain at the undergraduate dormitory but other members of the
university community can resume normal activities.
