Hiding the truth from the public? Hmmm…

After a shooting occurred within a thousand feet of several residence halls at the College of William & Mary – leaving a security guard with a bullet permanently lodged in his back – the campus police chief said it was “an isolated incident involving individuals in a dispute” and there was no imminent threat to campus.

The campus newspaper, The Flat Hat, says that’s not quite true: It was gang violence that several police departments have been tracking for years.
