North Carolina school: Student’s shooting followed argument


DURHAM (AP) — Police at North Carolina Central University in Durham say an argument led to a shooting that sent one student to a hospital.

A lockdown was briefly issued at the school around 11 p.m. Sunday after the student was shot on the edge of the campus. University spokeswoman Ayana Hernandez says the lockdown was lifted about 50 minutes later.

Hernandez said in a statement Monday morning that there wasn’t an active shooter situation on the campus. Hernandez said the shooting followed an argument and was not a random act.

She said the 19-year-old sophomore was treated and released from a hospital Monday morning. The student’s name was not released.

No arrests have been made.
