AURORA, Colo. (AP) -- Campus police are investigating an accidental shooting at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora.

KUSA-TV in Denver reports two people sustained minor injuries that didn't require hospitalization after a gun went off accidentally in an office at the dental school Friday.

A university spokesman says the gun owner is a CU employee who had a concealed carry permit for it. He says the employee is on administrative leave.

Campus Police Chief Doug Abraham says there is no threat to campus safety or security.
