An argument led to a shooting that wounded a 19-year-old sophomore and sent North Carolina Central University into a brief lockdown Sunday night, cops said.
The university said in a statement that the shooting happened at approximately 11 p.m. EDT near the edge of campus in Durham. The statement said the student, who is not being identified, was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
NCCU sent a tweet from its official account around 11:15 p.m. Sunday that mentioned an "active shooter" and urged students to seek shelter "away from gunfire." The statement said an "all clear" was issued at 11:50 p.m.
#NCCUEagleAlert: All clear. The campus lockdown has been lockdown lifted. Normal activities can resume.

WNCN reported that the street where the shooting took place runs between the university's football stadium and a parking structure.
University spokeswoman Ayana Hernandez said no arrests have been made. Campus police are investigating.
