MILWAUKEE (AP) – A Marquette University student who was shot in the hand during a robbery attempt near the Milwaukee campus has been released from the hospital.

The 19-year-old male student was one of three students who were confronted by robbers in the same area about 2:30 a.m. Friday. Authorities say the other two students gave up their valuables and were not injured.

Officers from the university’s Department of Public Safety apprehended one of two suspected robbers. The second is still at large.
