KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Avila University in Kansas City university is warning students about someone attempting to secretly record a woman inside a residence hall shower.

The Kansas City Star reports that Darby Gough, an Avila official, detailed how officials planned to add security in the dorms in an email sent Thursday to students. Gough wrote that additional cameras will be installed in Ridgway and Carondelet halls and campus safety officers will make additional rounds.
