One person was killed and another was injured in a shooting at Winston-Salem State University in North Carolina, the school said early Sunday.

The university said the campus was placed on full lockdown after a shooting was reported at around 1:20 a.m. The lockdown was lifted and an all-clear was given just over three hours later.

"We can confirm that there has been one fatality and one injured individual," Winston-Salem University said in a statement. "Both are believed to be students."

It said police were looking for the suspect and that counseling services would be available to students on Sunday.
