SALISBURY — Livingstone College campus police are investigating a Thursday night on-campus shooting.
No one was injured in the shooting, college officials said.
The incident occurred near the pavilion area on campus. That’s where shots were fired. The campus was placed on lockdown throughout the night. The investigation is ongoing, according to Kimberly Harrington, assistant director of public relations at the college.
Salisbury Police said they were called to the campus initially after they were told about what was believed to be an argument on campus followed by shots fired. The investigation was then turned over to Livingstone College Police.
“Livingstone College encourages and values the safety and security of our students. The incident that occurred was an isolated event,” said college President Dr. Jimmy R. Jenkins, Sr. in an emailed statement. “We are taking the appropriate measures to ensure the continued safety of our students and are reviewing our safety procedures to strengthen campus security. Our planned events over this holiday weekend will continue to engage students in positive activities.”
