At least three people were killed and another wounded in a shooting Tuesday near the University of Maryland, Baltimore campus, Baltimore police say.
Detective Rashawn Strong said in a statement early Wednesday that officers responded to a report of a shooting just after 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night at a location a few blocks from the college.
Campus police reported that two suspects opened fire after emerging from two light-colored vans that pulled over on W. Fayette Street at 10:37 p.m. on Tuesday. They got out of the vehicles and began firing, striking four individuals.
Strong said officers found a woman and two men with gunshot wounds. One man and the woman were taken to a hospital, where they died. The second man was pronounced dead at the scene.
A fourth victim walked into a hospital seeking treatment for a gunshot wound. Strong says the woman, who suffered a gunshot wound to the back, is listed in stable condition.
There's no indication students were involved, said Alex Likowski, spokesman for the school, which focuses on graduate and professional education and enrolls about 6,000 students.
It was the second shooting in the block in a week, according to campus police. On Thursday, a passenger was injured when the rear window of a moving vehicle was shot.
