RENO, Nev. — Police say a shooting at the University of Nevada, Reno within nine hours of a separate but similar incident near campus prompted a four-hour lockdown of dormitories.

Campus police chief Adam Garcia says a man who is not a student suffered a gunshot wound to the leg after he was shot Saturday night near the Fleischmann Building. A school police spokesman says the lockdown ended after midnight.

Reno police say the second shooting comes nine hours after a burglary attempt on Friday near the campus. Police say they appear unrelated, though both involved a resident and burglary suspects.
