Delaware State University Police are investigating after two students were shot during a robbery on campus Saturday morning.
It happened just before 2 a.m. in front of the Wellness and Recreation Center.
An original e-mail sent to students this morning states that four people were shot.
However, the school is now reporting that there were only two shot, and that those two individuals were Delaware State University students.
The students were taken to Bay Health Kent County Hospital, their conditions are unknown at this time.
No arrests have been made.
In the letter, the Delaware State University President wrote,
“First, let me say that my thoughts this morning are with the students and families as well as any other members of our University community affected by this moment.
At Delaware State University, we are a family. An event that affects the safety of one of us affects all of us. When moments like these emerge, they are understandably fraught with anxiety and indignation.
I share your feelings, and, at the same time, I can assure students and families that the University is committed to creating and maintaining a safe campus environment.
We will pursue justice in this matter. Our commitment to ourselves and each other leads us to respond to any challenge made against our collective and individual senses of security.”
The letter also states that updates will be made at a September 6th forum where community, staff and students can express their concerns.
The president also ensures that there will be additional security at tonight’s football home opener against Lincoln University.
