DOVER, Del. – Police continue to investigate a shooting on the campus of Delaware State University, according to a school official.

Three people were shot and injured Saturday night at a University sanctioned fraternity and sorority cookout on the campus around 8 p.m., officials said, and authorities are searching for the shooter.
   
Carlos Holmes, the director of news services on campus, said three victims were taken to Kent General with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Holmes says no arrests were made as of 3 p.m. Sunday.

DSU President Harry L. Williams said in a news release that the victims' names were not being released.  Holmes said on Sunday that all three victims were not DSU students. He said they were listed in stable condition as of Saturday afternoon.

An emergency notification email went out Saturday to students saying a shooting occurred at an outside party. The email advised everyone to stay indoors.

"The safety of our students continues to be paramount and our police will aggressively continue their investigation until an arrest or arrests are made in this shooting incident," Williams said. DSU campus police is leading the investigation, with help from the Dover Police Department, Delaware State Police and other agencies.

The University said Sunday police are also investigating a second incident that took place at 1:15 a.m. Sunday morning. In that incident, the University says shots were reportedly fired in the area of the University Courtyard Apartments. There were no injuries in that incident. The University would not say if they believed if the two incidents were connected, but they did say the University Police were investigating.

The University says DSU campus police are the lead agency investigating the incident. The Dover Police Department, Delaware State Police and other agencies are providing assistance.

Despite these incidents this weekend, the University says classes will resume on a normal schedule on Monday.
