A New Hampshire man has been charged with several offenses after a shot fired near Keene State College prompted a temporary lockdown on campus.

Court officials say 22-year-old Tyler Day of Keene is facing eight charges in connection with a domestic disturbance Wednesday morning.

College spokeswoman Kelly Ricaurte says the college went into lockdown around 10 a.m. after Keene police responded to the incident that involved a gun. No injuries were reported and the lockdown was lifted before 10:30.

Day was arraigned in Keene District Court and held on $250,000 bail. He is charged with felony criminal threatening, tampering with a witness and being a felon in possession of a gun, among other things.

Day doesn't have a lawyer yet.
