Officers are searching for suspects after two teenagers were shot at Bowie State University during homecoming festivities Saturday night.
Maryland State Police said officers responded to the school's Center for Business and Graduate Studies around 11:30 p.m. after gunshots were heard near Henry Circle.
At the scene, police located two 19-year-old teenagers who were victims of gunshots, who were taken to the hospital and both are recovering from their wounds.
According to police, none of the victims are Bowie State University students.
The responding officers had originally been assigned to security for the university's homecoming festivities this weekend.
Investigators said a firearm was recovered from the scene and they believe more than one gunman was involved.
Sophomore Credence Jackson said the shooting has the student body concerned.
"It is concerning that this is the second shooting to occur at an HBCU in the last two weeks," Jackson said.
This shooting comes less than a week after an unrelated shooting at Morgan State University in Baltimore in which five people were injured.
Bowie State University President Aminta Breaux said she understands students' concerns.
“I understand your fear,” Breaux said. "This is not normal. “This is not Bowie State University.”
Breaux said all classes were canceled Monday and students will have access to counseling services.
No arrests have been made and the MSP said the investigation is ongoing. They ask anyone with information or video of the shooting to share it with police at 301-860-4688.
