Classes at Bowie State University have been cancelled for Monday, and two teenagers are recovering after being shot following the homecoming game on Saturday.
Officers rushed to Henry Circle near the Centre for Business and Graduate Studies for a shooting reported at 11:45 p.m. Maryland State Police were allegedly already on campus assisting with festivities.
According to FOX 5 DC, officers later determined that two 19-year-old men had been reported injured in the shooting and were taken to a hospital.
During a press conference on Sunday, police stated that one weapon was seized from the scene, but they believe there was more than one shooter.
Bowie State is the state’s first historically Black college or university.
The shooting comes just days after at least two persons opened fire during an argument at Morgan State University in Baltimore, injuring five people, four of whom were students.
“It is deeply concerning that gun violence is encroaching on our safe haven. We are committed to ensuring the safety of our students,” a statement sent out by Bowie State University on X, formerly known as Twitter, said.
According to FOX 5, the suspects in the shooting Saturday night were neither students at Bowie or Morgan. They are investigating leads.
The injured are expected to make a full recovery. There were no additional injuries reported.
The shooting was classified as isolated by police, and detectives believe there is no danger to others.
