An Anhui Province man was arrested for shooting women on a college campus with ball bearings and a makeshift slingshot.

Police said the 27-year-old surnamed Li shot seven female students at Fuyang Normal University over five days.

Li was taken into custody Monday for injuries to at least two students in a string of what police said are random attacks.

The suspect later told officers he carried out the shootings "for fun," thepaper.cn reported.

Photos provided by students show at least two victims suffered injuries that involved serious bleeding.

Students first alerted school authorities on November 5. The attacks were concentrated around the school's gymnasium, school officials said.

The school issued a warning on Sina Weibo instructing students to avoid footpaths around the school's gymnasium.

Li is being held in police custody and an investigation is still underway.
