SC shooting - University placed on LOCKDOWN as gunman on the run

SC shooting - University placed on LOCKDOWN as gunman on the run

Several buildings on the campus of the University of South Carolina Upstate were locked down after reports of a shooting, officials say.

Among the disputed issues was the initial description of the suspected shooter.

Students, through social media, were receiving information that shots were fired at the apartments and the reported suspect, described as a black male wearing khaki trousers and grey hoodie, carrying an automatic weapon, was on foot near campus, according to a campus administration tweet.

That lock down has been lifted, according to USC Upstate on their Twitter account. The entire campus was put on lockdown. Deputies responded to reports of a shooting at 12:20 p.m.

Josh Gordon: "Clean and sober"
He has fought hard to get his life back in control and work his way back onto the field. "I know I have the support in place outside and inside the building".

As of 4:30 p.m., a suspect had not been arrested. No injuries have been reported on campus.

As the shooting occurred at an off-campus apartment, the shooting falls under the jurisdiction of the SCSO, not the USC Upstate campus police.

Bobo said the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office feels there was never a threat to students and staff at the school.

One person is reported to have suffered a gunshot wound to the arm, according to The Independent. A university spokeswoman said that the victim is not a student at the college.
