NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- A University of Oklahoma student is being held on three misdemeanor complaints following a police
investigation of shots fired from the window of a stairwell at a residential dormitory.

University police Chief Joe Lester said two rounds from a 9 mm pistol were fired early Sunday at Cross Center. The gun was found
in Ferrell Wayne Koassechony's room but authorities don't know who fired it or whether the gun is legally owned.

Koassechony, 19, was being held in the Cleveland County Detention Center on complaints of possession of marijuana,
possession of paraphernalia and public intoxication. Arraignment bond is $1,000. No complaint has been filed in connection with the shooting.

Students reported hearing sounds like fireworks or gunshots about 2 a.m. Sunday. Police said no one was outside at the time.
Two bullets were found in the ground outside the window.
