A judge Monday set bond at $40,000 and told Quavaugntay Tyler, 24, of Cleveland, to stay away from the northeast Ohio campus. It’s not clear if he has an attorney.

Kent State police said the freshman fired only once last Wednesday night while arguing with two female students.

No one else was hurt. Police said Tyler was the subject of a campus theft investigation and was on probation from a separate theft case.

He told police he had a gun because he’d been the victim of an armed robbery.
