A Las Vegas professor is facing felony gun charges after he reportedly shot himself in the arm in protest of President Trump.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported on Tuesday that College of Southern Nevada sociology professor, Mark J. Bird, was charged with the unlawful discharge of a firearm, carrying a concealed weapon without a permit and the possession a deadly weapon on school property for his role in an on-campus shooting last month.

The article goes on to state the following:

Court records obtained by the local paper revealed Bird allegedly shot himself on school grounds in protest of the president. A police report detailing the incident reportedly did not elaborate on the professor’s reasoning behind the shooting.

On the day of the reported shooting on Aug. 28, Bird was reportedly seen stumbling out of a school bathroom while bleeding from a self-inflicted wound before collapsing.

In the bathroom Bird exited, campus police said they found a $100 bill that had been taped to a mirror in addition to a note reading: “For the janitor.” Campus police also reported finding a .22-caliber pistol on the bathroom floor and a spent shell casing.

According to the newspaper, Bird, who was hired by the college in 1993, remained employed with the college as of Tuesday.

However, Bird, who was reportedly an emeritus faculty member at the time of the incident, is not scheduled to teach courses at the school during the coming fall semester.
