LANGSTON — Security upgrades put in place after a 2010 shooting appear to have quelled campus crime at Langston University, the campus police chief says.
Langston University police Chief Michael Storr said there have been no major crimes on campus since an Oct. 14, 2010, incident that landed two men in the hospital.
One man was shot and another was kicked in the head and seriously injured when a fight broke out at Langston's Scholars' Inn Complex dormitory.

Logan County Sheriff Jim Bauman said his office hasn't been called to any incidents at the university since the shooting.
“It's been really quiet,” he said.
After the incident, university officials recognized they were unable to get reliable information about campus crime from students, Storr said. A “no-snitching” attitude existed on campus, he said, so students were unwilling to come forward with information.
Campus loitering, particularly at night, had become a problem, he said. Most of the problems were caused not by students, but by visitors.
