Shooting at Delaware School Residence Hall Injures 1; Suspect at Large

By    |   Tuesday, 04 Nov 2014 08:59 AM

A shooting at a Delaware school residence hall on Monday put one student in the hospital as police continue to search for the suspect.

The victim, a male student, was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries,  Kay Sass, Dover emergency management coordinator, told The Associated Press.

The shooting was reported shortly after 5 p.m. at the Living and Learning Commons, a residence hall on the Delaware State University campus, said Dover Police Cpl. Mark Hoffman. The school was put on lockdown about 5:30 p.m., university spokesman Carlos Holmes said. The residence hall, formerly a Sheraton hotel, is about a half-mile north of the campus.

Neither Sass nor Hoffman offered any description of the shooter, who remained at large late Monday.

Hoffman said police believe the shooting was an isolated incident. Sass said investigators "felt comfortable enough to lift the lockdown" shortly after 8 p.m.

Breanna Barber, 18, a freshman from Abingdon, Maryland, said she learned about the shooting about 6 p.m. when her instructor got an alert on her cellphone and told students.

Delaware State University is a historically black university. It has more than 4,100 full- and part-time students, more than half of whom live on campus.
