One dead, one hurt in Winston-Salem State University shooting
One person has died and another been injured at a shooting at a US university, officials say.
Winston-Salem State University says a suspected gunman is on the loose and visitors to the campus are urged to be cautious and stay away from restricted areas.
The shooting was reported around 1:20 am on Sunday near Wilson Hall and Gleason-Hairston Terrace. The campus was quickly placed on lockdown and movement restricted for about three hours until around 4:50 am.
The university says both of the victims are believed to be students. The suspect is not believed to be a current student.
The historically black school in Winston-Salem was celebrating its homecoming weekend, when former students and staff return.
Campus police could not be reached for comment.
