(Newser) – Two students were wounded early this morning in a shooting at Delaware State University. The campus was locked down, as police search for the shooter. Both students are alive, one with serious wounds that a university spokesman called “potentially life-threatening.” Classes are canceled for the day, with students and faculty told to remain in their buildings until further notice.

Police haven’t been able to speak with either victim yet. The two were shot near Memorial Hall around 1 a.m. Just weeks ago the historically black college held a memorial service for three students who were shot last month execution-style in a New Jersey school yard. A rally supporting the so-called Jena Six, six black teenagers charged in a high school fight in Louisiana, had been held on campus last night. (Read more Delaware stories.)
