Three people shot at Baltimore's Towson University

Three people were shot at Towson University, including one student, early Saturday morning in an “egregious act of violence,” the school’s president announced.

The trio was shot on Saturday at about 2 a.m. in Freedom Square, a campus area near academic buildings at the college, during an unsanctioned gathering, according to Towson University President Kim Schatzel.

“Early Saturday morning, just hours after many students and faculty finished their first week of in-person learning for the fall semester, our campus and community experienced an egregious act of violence,” she said in a message to Towson faculty and students.

None of the injuries from the overnight gunfire were life-threatening, and the student, an unidentified woman, was in “good spirits” when university leadership visited her in an area hospital, Schatzel said.  

“I visited with her and her family, along with Vice President Vernon Hurte, at the hospital early Saturday morning to offer our support and we are staying in close contact with them. Her condition is stable and she was in good spirits,” Schatzel said in the memo. “The best news of all is that she is looking forward to a full recovery very soon.”

The other two victims are “not affiliated” with the school, according to an update sent by the university.

Baltimore County Police said Saturday morning in a tweet that the shootings at Towson campus’ center was an “isolated incident.”
