    This was not on the UConn law agenda, but it seems a student used what he learned in the classroom to help run a huge international pot ring.

     One person was killed Wednesday afternoon when shots were fired at a  marijuana-growing operation in the Lake Berryessa area, a Napa County  sheriff's captain said.

          A member of the Napa Special Investigations Bureau fired the  shots, killing one person, at about 12:50 p.m., sheriff's Capt. Tracey Stuart  said.
         
    The drug enforcement team was hiking into the growing operation  when the shooting occurred, Stuart said.
         
    SWAT teams from the sheriff's office and Napa Police Department  are securing the area, Stuart said.
         
    The California Highway Patrol and the Sonoma County Sheriff's  Office each sent a helicopter to the scene, Stuart said.
