Case Western Student Shot, Recovering

Cleveland - A student at Case Western Reserve University is recovering after being shot in the stocmach during an attempted car jacking Saturday night.

The incident happened around 8 p.m. on Murray Hill Road near the campus. After the victim was shot, the two gunman, who are both under the age of 20, were taken into custody following a shootout with police at the RTA station nearby. 

The victim is a fraternity member of Phi Delta Theta, and his "brothers" sprung onto the scene to help him after he was shot.

 "They got the gauze, started patching up the wound and called the ambulance and got them there as soon as possible, They knew that they had to be there because, if they didn't help him, he was ultimately going to die," that from Fraternity President Austin Navarrett, who talked with WKYC. 

As a result, the University, along with local police departments, have increased security police-presence in the area.
