Police at California State University, Sacramento shot a man on campus after he allegedly beat another man during a fight in a student dormitory. Sacramento city police Sgt. Norm Leong says three campus officers were responding to reports of a disturbance at a dorm Wednesday when a man charged them with a knife.

It's not clear how many shots were fired.

Paramedics treated the man with gunshot wounds and another who had been badly beaten, possibly with a baseball bat. Both have been taken to hospitals.

Authorities say they are not sure whether those involved are students.
