Baltimore police said that at least four people have been shot at or near Morgan State University.
The four were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, a Baltimore police spokesperson said. Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center was treating one patient from the attack, a spokesperson there said.
More details about the situation were not immediately clear. Baltimore police said around 10 p.m. on the social media platform X that people should shelter in place.
“An active investigation is currently underway related to a report of shots being fired on or near campus,” the university said in an alert earlier.
“Please stay clear of the area surrounding Thurgood Marshall Hall and the Murphy Fine Arts Center and shelter in place,” it said.
Morgan State University did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Police on X gave the address as the 1700 block of Argonne Drive, which appears on online maps to be on the campus.
Morgan State says on its website that it is among the nation’s most diverse historically Black colleges and universities, and the largest in Maryland. It had around 9,100 students in last fall’s semester, it said.
The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said it was assisting Baltimore police.
