Police say eight cases were found in the parking lot near the building, and there was just the one bullet that shattered the window.

No one is in custody in connection with this incident.

Crews boarded up the shattered window on Tuesday night.

"I think it was very shocking to hear gunshots going on -- so my immediate response was to, you know, drop -- but then also to make sure my students were OK because at that time it's a very prime time where our students are coming in and out of the building," Joelynett Mckee, center director for the Midtown Center said.

Concordia officials tell FOX6 News they're using this incident to see how Concordia can partner with police to ensure an even safer environment for students and staff.

    good thing it wasn’t a planned parenthood clinic…..people would be outraged and probably injured. A ‘higher education’ facility in the inner-city -likely to have no one around anyway……
