NC A&T Student Detained After Shooting On Monday Night

University students were alerted of the incident early Monday morning via the campus emergency alert system.

According to WFMY News 2, a single gunshot was fired inside Barbee Hall on the building’s second floor, though no injuries were reported. Students were notified of the incident via a campus text alert system called AggieAlert. 

“UPD is investigating shots fired inside of Barbee Hall. No injuries were reported and UPD was on scene. Stay clear of the scene,” it read, according to Fox 8. While university police investigated, students were instructed to report any information that they may have to the campus emergency hotline. 

The university issued a statement on social media regarding the situation. “As we continue to be vigilant in maintaining a safe, campus environment, please remember weapons are strictly prohibited on our campus,” it tweeted. “As always, if you see something, say something. Please review your Aggie email for complete details.”
