Building Community through Shared History - A KU Memorial Union Program

No One Was Charged

After days of suspected sniper fire and fire bombings near campus, Lawrence police moved toward a crowd on Oread Avenue, firing tear gas. A few officers also fired their weapons. A bullet struck fleeing 18-year-old KU freshman Harry Nicholas “Nick” Rice  in the base of the skull and he would die at the scene.
