Police: 1 shot at Morgan State in Baltimore, suspect in custody

BALTIMORE — A suspect is in custody after an apparent shooting on the campus of Morgan State University in Baltimore.

A police spokesman says the shooting happened around 1 p.m. Friday in the 1700 block of East Cold Spring Lane, which runs through the northern part of campus. The spokesman says an adult male was shot, but the person’s injuries are not fatal. Police have also recovered a weapon. It was not clear if either person is a student.

An alert on the university’s website updated at 1:52 p.m. said the situation is clear though police remain at a residence hall. A university spokesman said officials are gathering information.

A shooting on the campus in September also injured one person.

The school, a historically black university, has an enrollment of approximately 6,000.
