A Kent State University student suspected of prompting a campus lockdown after shooting himself in the hand has pleaded not guilty to carrying a concealed weapon.
It's not clear if he has an attorney.
Kent State police say the freshman fired only once last Wednesday night while arguing with two female students. No one else was hurt.
Police say Tyler was the subject of a campus theft investigation and was on probation from a separate theft case. He told police he had a gun because he'd been the victim of an armed robbery.
