The college issued an emergency alert saying there had been "active gunfire" about 11:15 p.m. ET. The lockdown was lifted about 11:50 p.m., but the school called the investigation into the shooting "active."

One student was transported to a hospital with a non-life-threatening injury in the shooting on campus around 11:00 p.m. ET. The shooter hadn't been apprehended, Durham police told NBC station WNCN of Raleigh.

No further details were immediately available.
