Seton Hall campus reopens after shootingPosted: Updated:
Police say a self-inflicted shooting caused Seton Hall University's campus to go into lockdown Monday.
The campus, which is now back open, was shut down and all dormitory residents were locked in for about two hours.
Police say 22-year-old Kevin Papplia, of Aberdeen, shot himself in the stomach in a car around 9 p.m. Officials say Papplia is not a student at the school, but was distraught over a breakup with a female student. They say after Papplia shot himself, he went into the lobby of his ex-girlfriend?s dormitory.
Some students say they received e-mails and text messages from the school about the incident. However, others say they never got that information.
Papplia is in stable condition at University Hospital under a suicide watch. He is facing weapons, trespassing and harassment charges. His bail has been set at $300,000 and a psychiatric evaluation has been ordered.
Police say no students were injured in the incident. They also say the weapon used in the shooting has been recovered.Related information: Seton Hall locked down after campus shooting reports
