Police are hunting several suspects after a man was shot and wounded outside Harvard University's Kirkland House residence yesterday, the Harvard Crimson reports. The victim—described as a "college-age" African-American—is not a student, according to university officials. The shooting came as students were cramming for final exams, and Harvard plans to extend “exam forgiveness" to allow affected students to reschedule tests. (More Harvard stories.)
