Baltimore police are asking for the public’s help in identifying people who may be involved in a Tuesday evening shooting at Morgan State University that left five people injured.
In a video released by the department Wednesday evening, four unidentified people described as persons of interest in connection with the shooting can be seen walking in a grassy area. The video then cuts to a later point and three of the four people are seen walking in the opposite direction through the same area. Other details related to the video have not been released, and a request to Baltimore police from Fox News Digital was not immediately responded to.
As of Thursday morning, authorities had made no arrests in connection with the shooting that took place on MSU’s campus as students, alumni and their families celebrated homecoming festivities.
Four men and a woman aged 18 to 22 were shot during the shooting. All five victims, including four MSU students, were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Richard Worley said the shooting happened around 9:25 p.m. Tuesday in the 1700 block of Argonne Drive and university police officers patrolling the campus quickly responded. The Baltimore Police Department also responded to assist, initially describing the incident as an “active shooter situation” after locating several broken windows in the area.
A lockdown order was issued by MSU at 10:19 p.m. and was lifted at 12:23 a.m. after Baltimore police confirmed the incident was “no longer considered an active shooter situation.”
The name of the damaged building was not released, but police noted the shooting took place outside.

MSU President David Wilson said during a news conference Wednesday morning that many people were on campus for the crowning of Mr. and Miss MSU inside the Murphy Fine Arts Center, whose auditorium was filled almost to capacity.
After the coronation, Wilson said many were heading to the student center for more homecoming celebrations when “the unfortunate situation arose on campus.”
Wilson immediately announced that all classes on Wednesday had been canceled as a result of the shooting, but ultimately decided to cancel classes and almost all homecoming festivities for the rest of the week.
Saturday’s football game and the 39th Annual Homecoming Gala are postponed until those responsible for the shooting are arrested and brought to justice, a university statement said.
Anyone with information about the shooting or those interested in the video can call detectives at 410-396-2444 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LO-CKUP.
