Seventh-floor window at The View struck by gunshot

Temple and Philadelphia Police are investigating shots fired near The View early Tuesday morning. A TU Alert was sent out to students at about 1:30 a.m.

The alert said a window in the apartment building, located at 1100 W. Montgomery Ave., had been struck by a bullet and shattered. Executive Director of Campus Safety Services Charlie Leone said in an email “it appears to be a stray bullet” that struck the seventh floor of the building. He added there were no injuries.

Leone said the location of a discharge has not yet been found. He added, however, that police believe it could have been from 11th Street near Oxford.

The investigation is ongoing, Leone said.
