Man Accused Of Firing A Gun On A North Carolina University Campus Taken Into Custody

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A man accused of firing a gun during an argument on a North Carolina university campus Tuesday has been taken in custody, police said.

Officers received a call at 1:25 p.m. about a potential shooting near a student center at Shaw University in Raleigh, police Capt. J.R. Manson said. No one was reported injured after the suspect fired off four rounds, he said.

Shaw University did not immediately respond to a request for comment by email.

The suspect, a man in his 70s, was a regular guest at the center, police said. He was not a student, according to police.

The man got into an argument with another person outside of the center and then shot a gun, Manson said. Police arrived shortly after when they heard the shots fired nearby.

After being taken into custody, the man was questioned by investigators. The person he argued with was also interviewed by police.

The firearm was recovered by police after the shooting. The suspect has not yet been charged.

Shaw University is one of the oldest historically Black universities in the Southeast, according to its website. More than 1,000 students are enrolled there, according to its student profile.
