WASHINGTON - Howard University officials say a 17-year-old who was injured from a self-inflicted gunshot wound is not a student at the school.
"New details reveal that the 17-year-old victim's self-description as a Howard University student was falsified," the University's Department of Public Safety said.
D.C. police say the victim suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The shooting was reported around 12:05 a.m. Thursday morning near Georgia Avenue and Fairmont Street in northwest D.C.
Investigators have not released any additional information and have not said if anyone else was involved in the incident.
