University President Thomas Elzey choked back tears as he promised to keep his students safe. He said the student killed was a nice young man.

Orangeburg County coroner says the victim is 20-year-old Brandon Robinson.

Campus Police Chief Mernard Clarkson says police don't know what led to the shooting.

Clarkson says the campus is secure and students are safe.

South Carolina State is a historically black school with about 3,200 students in Orangeburg, about 40 miles south of Columbia.

This shooting comes just days after one person was killed in a shooting at Purdue University in Indiana.
