York U president requests report following on-campus gun incident

February 24, 2012

Following charges laid against a York University law student who allegedly fired a 12-gauge shotgun through a residence room door on February 18, York U president Mamdouh Shoukri says the institution will continue to work closely with police as the investigation progresses to learn more about how the incident occurred and to determine what the university might still need to do to further enhance safety. Shoukri has asked the institution's VP Finance and Administration, as Chair of the Management Safety Committee, to provide a report within 90 days. "I want to assure everyone that the safety and well-being of all our community members -- students, faculty, and staff -- is paramount at York," says Shoukri. President's Statement | National Post
