SHOOTING AT THE CU NIGHTCLUB. BUT FIRST, THE LATEST DETAILS ON THE ALBUQUERQUE SHOOTING. FOUR DAYS AFTER THAT INCIDENT THERE ARE STILL MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS. ONE OF THE BIGGEST BEING, WHY WAS THE NEW MEXICO STATE BASKETBALL PLAYER ABLE TO BRING A GUN ON A SCHOOL TRIP? AND WHY WASN’T HIS BAG CHECKED BY OFFICIALS? WE SPOKE WITH OUR LEGAL EXPERT ABOUT GUN LAWS ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES, BUT THE LAWS HAVE BEEN CLEAR THAT YOU CANNOT HAVE A GUN ON CAMPUS, YOU CAN’T CARRY IT CONCEALED EVEN IF YOU HAVE A PERMIT. WITH VERY FEW EXCEPTIONS, THERE ARE NO GUNS ON COLLEGE OR UNIVERSITY CAMPUSES. NOW, IN MSU OFFICIALS ADMIT THE STUDENT ATHLETES BAGS WERE NOT CHECKED AT ANY POINT DURING THE TRIP. BUT GOING FORWARD, THEY WILL BE THAT SHOOTING LEADING TO MORE BREAKING NEWS AS UNM AND NEW MEXICO STATE TODAY ANNOUNCING THEY’VE CANCELED THEIR TWO MEETINGS THIS SEASON. BRIANNA BIJOU WAS AT THAT ANNOUNCEMENT. SHE JOINS US LIVE NOW FROM THE PIT. BRIANNA, YOU ARE ON THAT ANNOUNCEMENT CAME LESS THAN 30 MINUTES AGO. OUR PHOTOGRAPHER AND I JUST ACTUALLY CAME FROM THE MEDIA ROOM RIGHT HERE AT THE PIT. NOW. NOW, AS YOU MENTIONED, THERE WERE NOW BE NO GAME BETWEEN NMSU AND UNION MEN’S BASKETBALL TEAMS. THE FIRST ONE WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN THIS SATURDAY DAY AND THE OTHER ONE WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN LATER ON THIS SEASON IN LAS CRUCES. BUT AGAIN, THAT IS NO LONGER HAPPENING. NOW, THIS DECISION COMING AS AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE RIVAL SCHOOLS AFTER LAST SATURDAY’S DEADLY INCIDENT ON UNARMED CAMPUS. ATHLETIC OFFICIALS SAY IT WASN’T EASY TO GET TO IN THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS TO REFLECT WHAT WOULD BE THE BEST OPTION IN TERMS OF SAFETY AND SECURITY FOR STUDENTS AND ATHLETES. HERE’S WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY JUST MOMENTS AGO. THERE STILL THERE NEEDED TO BE A PAUSE. THIS EVENT JUST RECENTLY OCCURRED. THERE’S STILL A LOT OF ANXIETY AND CONCERN IN THE COMMUNITY. AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE TAKE PRECEDENT OVER THIS EVENT. WITH THAT, AS I CONTINUE TO PUT SOME CONSIDERATION INTO THIS, SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE DISCUSSED WAS THE AGAIN, THE UNREST, THE SITUATIONS THAT SURROUNDED THAT ALSO TOOK INTO CONSIDERATION IN PAST EXPERIENCES WHAT WE’VE EXPERIENCED OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS. WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT HAS HAPPENED, WHAT HAS GOTTEN US TO THIS POSITION IN REGARDS TO THE GAME ITSELF. AND I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CAN CONTINUE TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR OUR FANS, FOR OUR STUDENT ATHLETES, FOR OUR COACHES. NOW, OFFICIALS WENT ON TO SAY THAT THIS IS ABOUT A $500,000 LOSS IN TERMS OF THE UNM ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT ALONE. SO ALREADY SO MUCH MONEY ON HOLD RIGHT THERE AS FAR AS WHAT IT TAKES TO FEEL COMFORTABLE FOR FUTURE GAMES, THEY SAY THEY HARDSHIPS WITH APD YOU WOULD MPD ON MAKING SURE PEOPLE STAY SAFE. BUT RIGHT NOW THIS IS JUST A DECISION THEY’LL HAVE TO MAKE AND MAKE POSSIBLY IN THE FUTURE FOR OTHER GAMES, OR THINKING ABOUT INSTALLING METAL DETECTORS. REPORTING LI
