An active shooter incident at Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland, left multiple people injured on October 3, 2023, according to NBC News and the Baltimore Sun.

NBC News reported that five people were shot at the university. There is a “preliminary report of four individuals shot” on the university grounds, Baltimore City Fire Department Director of Communications Kevin Cartwright told CNN.

The Baltimore Sun also reported that the shooting occurred at, not just near, the campus.

There were initial reports that the gunman was shooting out of a dorm room. However, Justin Fenton, a reporter for the Baltimore Banner, wrote on X, “There was concern the shots were being fired from an upper floor dorm window, but it now appears they found a projectile inside the room with a shot out window, and it’s now believed shots were fired from outside.”

Baltimore police confirmed, “BPD is on scene of an active shooter situation in the 1700 block of Argonne Drive. We’re asking everyone to shelter in place and avoid the area.” That address is in proximity to campus.

The police statement did not reveal the number of condition of victims, the motive, or whether a suspect is in custody. However, NBC News reported that, according to a police spokesperson, “multiple people have been shot.”
