FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas athletic department employee injured a leg Saturday when a T-Shirt gun apparently malfunctioned during the first half of the Razorbacks' victory over Louisiana-Lafayette.

School spokesman Kevin Trainor says a marketing department intern, whose name he declined to give, was injured and transported to Washington Regional Medical Center.

A loud explosion was heard from the southeast corner of Razorback Stadium while the Ragin' Cajuns were driving during the first quarter. Following the explosion, emergency medical personnel were seen responding to an injured patient who was taken from the field on a stretcher.

A police officer was seen afterward holding the T-Shirt gun, which is used to fire shirts into the crowd.

A hospital spokesperson was unable to release more information about the intern's condition without a name.
