BELLINGHAM, Wash. — A Western Washington University teaching assistant is accused of shooting another man in Bellingham.

Police say the victim was found wounded Saturday on a sidewalk.

Spokesman Mark Young tells The Bellingham Herald the man survived but details are not being released.

After the shooting, the suspect called police and 27-year-old Kamuran Daniel Chabuk was booked into jail for investigation of assault. A handgun was seized from his home.

Chabuk made his first appearance Monday in Whatcom County Superior Court and bail was set at $200,000.

Western Washington University says Chabuk is a 2008 graduate who was working toward a master’s degree in math. He has taught math classes at the university and had led a pre-calculus course this quarter. He’s barred from campus during the police investigation.
