A St. Catherine University public safety officer suffered a gunshot wound in the shoulder Sept. 12 in St. Paul.

He was shot in a wooded part of campus by Cleveland Avenue around 9:25 p.m. The shooter has not been apprehended, and St. Paul Police will continue to investigate.

The St. Catherine officer was treated at Regions Hospital in St. Paul according to a university statement. It also said he “is expected to make a full recovery.”
