Shooting during homecoming festivities at Baltimore university leaves 5 injured

Five people were wounded in a shooting that was initially described as an “active shooter situation” at Morgan State University Tuesday night as students were celebrating the university’s homecoming week.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Richard Worley said university police were patrolling the campus at 9:25 p.m. Tuesday when officers heard shots fired. The location of the shooting was quickly determined and officers found five people at the scene wounded by gunfire, four of whom are MSU students.

Names were not released, but Worley described the victims as four men and one woman between the ages of 18 and 22. All five were treated at the scene and transported to the hospital with what are believed to be non-life-threatening injuries, he added.

The Baltimore Police Department also responded to assist with the scene located in the 1700 block of Argonne Dr., the agency wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.

The university canceled classes for Wednesday and Wilson said an assessment will be made to determine the plans for the rest of the week.

MSU is a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) with over 9,000 students currently enrolled.
