At least four people were shot at Morgan State University on Tuesday in what the Baltimore Police Department described as an "active shooter situation."

The condition of the victims remains unclear, but police have confirmed multiple injured and asked locals to shelter in place. Police spokesman Vernon Davis, speaking to the Baltimore Banner, put the injured figure at at least four, the Associated Press reported.

"Please Note: An active investigation is currently underway related to a report of shots being fired on or near campus. Please stay clear of the area surrounding Thurgood Marshall Hall and the Murphy Fine Arts Center and shelter in place," the school posted around 10:15 p.m. "BPD and MSU officials are asking concerned family members to avoid the campus area. They may report to the Safeway parking lot at 4401 Harford Road. A BPD Officer will be available at that location."

Founded in 1867, Morgan State University is a historically black institution situated in northeast Baltimore.
