Pocatello Police are investigating the accidental discharge of a firearm at the Physical Science building at Idaho State University.
According to Lieutenant McCoy with the Pocatello Police Department, officers responded to campus just before 4:00 PM Tuesday to a report of shots fired. Police say an unnamed professor with an enhanced concealed carry permit accidentally discharged his weapon.
The professor was injured. Police say those injuries are non-life threatening. The investigation is ongoing but Lieutenant McCoy says the professor could possibly face a charge of discharging a fire arm within city limits.
