ORANGEBURG, S.C. — A student was shot Friday outside an on-campus dorm at South Carolina State University, and police were looking for four men who left campus.

The student was wounded outside of the Hugine Suites around 1:30 p.m., University Police Chief Mernard Clarkson said. The gunmen left campus before police could catch them, but authorities decided to lock down the campus so they could not return.

“Our students are secure and safe as we keep looking for these individuals,” Clarkson said.

Clarkson did not say what led to the shooting and did not update the wounded student’s condition. He also did not release any details about the suspects.
