Two people were shot and others were injured when gunfire erupted during the rapper Asian Doll’s performance at a homecoming concert at a North Carolina college over the weekend, officials said.
An altercation escalated with gunfire around 11 p.m. Saturday on the campus of Livingstone College, a historically Black private college in Salisbury, police said.
Officers who arrived at the scene found two people shot and “other associated injuries from attendees fleeing,” Salisbury police said.
“During the altercation, a person, who is not a student of Livingstone College, fired one or more shots,” police and the college said in a joint statement.
Police said there was no active threat to the community after the incident.
Officials identified the victims only as a female and a male in an update Sunday.
The male victim was flown to Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center and was listed as stable with a gunshot wound.
The female victim suffered a graze wound and was treated at and released from Novant Health Rowan Regional Medical Center.
Officials did not say whether the victims were students. Police and the college did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Police have released no information about a potential suspect.
"Salisbury Police Department is still investigating the incident and is devoting additional resources to solving this crime," the department said in its joint statement, noting that the investigation is still in its early stages.
Livingstone College President Anthony J. Davis denounced the shooting as a "senseless act of violence."
"We are working collaboratively with our local law enforcement agencies as they are conducting a thorough investigation. Please pray for us in the coming days and weeks ahead,” he said.
Salisbury Mayor Karen Alexander also offered support to students and faculty members.
“There is nothing more important than the safety and well-being of our community, particularly of our young people. I, and all of the members of City Council, offer our full support to the entire Livingstone College family during this difficult time," she said in a statement.
Asian Doll, who also goes by Asian Da Brat, did not issue a statement. She uploaded videos of her performance on her Instagram page.
She was one of several performers who took to the stage during homecoming celebrations on the campus Saturday.
