A TU Alert was sent to students around 12:50 p.m. telling them that the shots were from “Inside [the] store.”

He fired at the store from a Cadillac, said Charlie Leone, the executive director of Campus Safety Services.

“We initially were told it happened inside the store,” Leone wrote in an email. “As of now, we do not have anyone injured.”
