GREENSBORO, N.C. — Police are searching for four suspects in connection with a shooting at North Carolina A&T State University on Saturday night that injured a student and prompted the university to be placed on lockdown for nearly an hour.

Officers responded to 1505 Bluford Street around 10 p.m. in reference to a shooting. Police found Devine Eatmon, 21, on the sidewalk suffering from serious injuries.

Eatmon was transported to Moses Cone Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Officers determined one or more suspects discharged firearms in a grassy area near McCain Hall on the campus. The victim, who was described by police as a “considerable distance from the suspects”, was struck by one round.

Police told WGHP four suspects are being sought in connection with the shooting, according to police.

No additional suspect information was available.

Campus was placed on lockdown at 10:30 p.m. Saturday as the campus was celebrating homecoming. The lockdown was lifted around 11:15 p.m. because students observed the suspects leaving campus, according to school officials.

No other information is available at this time.

    We lived a few blocks from A&T when we lived in Greensboro. I am so glad we have moved out of that town. Greensboro is nothing but a wash of gun violence.

    Its shooting everywhere tho,.moving out of greensboro wont make you any safer. Greensboro is not even a high crime place and I’ve been here my whole life.

      Incredibly WRONG. It hasn’t been too long ago but per capita, Greensboro ranked in the top 10 in the US. They had special federal programs come here to address it.

    It doesn’t matter where you live, so called”thugs” are everywhere and of every color. I was at the festivities on yesterday and had a great time and can’t wait until next year. When people are trying to have fun….a rotten apple is always present
