Alamosa, Colo. (AP) - Adams State College police say they're looking for clues into an apparent blow-dart attack on campus.

College Police Chief Joel Shults says a student was struck with a 4-inch dart Wednesday night near the student union building computer lab. He says the dart likely came from a blow gun.

The woman was taken by ambulance to the hospital, where she was treated and released. The dart was recovered and taken as evidence.

Shults says the attack appeared to be random. He called it “cowardly” and one of the “most mean-spirited crimes” he's seen.
