How did Harrison Outram die?
Harrison Outram, who was found on campus with a self-inflicted injury has died, according to the authorities. Although he had a sizable handgun at the time, authorities refused to verify whether or not he was a licensed firearms owner. The death was deemed non-suspicious, and a coronial report is currently being compiled, they stated.
It occurred one day after the Washington government announced that, under proposed firearm law reforms, it would become the first jurisdiction in the nation to restrict the number of firearms an individual may possess.
