Professors, parents concerned over University of Arizona security after murder; Robbins says review started

After a University of Arizona professor was shot and killed last week, faculty and parents have raised concern over campus safety and lack of security.

UA president Robert Robbins sent out an email addressing the campus security concerns. Robbins said school leaders have begun the work to retain independent external experts in security and threat assessments to begin a comprehensive review of all aspects of campus safety, violence prevention and public safety response.
