Police: Deer runs through lounge at Salisbury University

SALISBURY — Police say a deer ran through a lounge at Salisbury University.

Lt. Brian Waller of Salisbury University Police says the deer ran through a window at the Guerrieri University Center on Monday afternoon. He says after it was briefly trapped inside the building, it exited through another window.

Blood stains were left on the windows and on curtains. Footage captured by witnesses shows the deer jumping over furniture and ramming into windows.

A statement from university police says a university officer euthanized the deer because it was significantly injured.

Police say there were no reported injuries to people in the building.
