Paramedics called to UM after student shoots own foot
MISSOULA, Mont. -

Missoula fire officials confirm a University of Montana student shot himself through the foot Wednesday night.

It happened at the law school shortly before 10 p.m. and we are told the student was taken to St. Patrick Hospital.

NBC Montana looked at UM’s gun policy and it prohibits firearms on campus unless the individual is a peace officer or federal authority.

It also says students living in residence halls have to register any firearms with the campus.

NBC Montana will be following up on this story and we will bring you the details as we learn more.
