(Newser) – Police are hunting several suspects after a man was shot and wounded outside Harvard University's Kirkland House residence yesterday, the Harvard Crimson reports. The victim—described as a "college-age" African-American—is not a student, according to university officials. The shooting came as students were cramming for final exams, and Harvard plans to extend “exam forgiveness" to allow affected students to reschedule tests.
