The incident occurred just hours after another shooting near the same housing complex. The university said in a statement posted on its website that the earlier shooting occurred early Friday morning, and that the school was increasing police presence on campus. No other details were immediately available and it's not clear if the shootings are linked.
The university has about 9,700 students.
