MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Marquette University officials say a student was shot during a robbery on campus early Friday morning.

The university says their public safety office received three calls about two men trying to rob students near campus at 2:30 a.m.

One robber tried to rob a student outside a parking structure and during a struggle, the robber shot the student in the hand.

After hearing the shots, the other robber was spooked and gave one student back their stuff. 

Police arrested the robber suspected of shooting the student, but the other one is still out there.

University officials sent students warnings about the robberies shortly after the first report.  They sent follow up alerts and e-mails while events were unraveling.

Our affiliate, WISN, says officials assured that classes will go on as normal on Friday.
