Shooting reported near USC Upstate campus, shooter flees on foot, officials say

Police Shooting

USC Upstate placed multiple buildings on lockdown Tuesday afternoon after a shooting near campus.

They said he was on foot near campus.

Lt. Kevin Bobo said when deputies got to the apartments on Pinegate Drive at about 12:20 p.m., they found a man with a gunshot wound to his arm.

That lock down has been lifted, according to USC Upstate on their Twitter account.

Officials at USC have claimed the suspect is a black male wearing khaki pants, a grey hoodie and carrying an automatic weapon.

The campus is put on lockdown around 1:10 p.m.

University Police has removed the campus from lockdown.

"Our investigation continues, but at present, we don't feel there was or is any active threat to the students and staff at USC-Upstate", Bobo said.

An alert was sent to students that the shots possibly came from near the campus library and a nearby apartment complex. Bobo emphatically said it it "NOT on their campus, which means it is under the jurisdiction of the Sheriff's Office".

According to Tammy Whaley, a USC Upstate spokesperson, one individual has been shot and is suffering non-life-threatening injuries.
