Three men were shot and injured Saturday night at a cookout on the Delaware State University campus, officials said, and authorities are searching for the shooter.

The shooting happened at about 8 p.m. at a university-sanctioned fraternity and sorority event, DSU spokesman Carlos Holmes said.

The victims were taken to Kent General Hospital in Dover with injuries that were not life-threatening, Holmes told The Associated Press.

“We can definitely tell you that the three victims were not DSU students,” Holmes said Sunday. “The event had a lot of guests … a lot of people that came from the surrounding communities and other schools.”

While confirming that the victims were all male, Holmes did not provide their ages or hometowns or any other details, including a possible motive for the shootings or whether any suspects have been identified.

DSU President Harry L. Williams said in a news release Saturday night that students were told to stay inside their dormitories, while non-students were asked to leave campus. Read more at
