A student at the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore was shot and wounded off-campus early Sunday morning, according to a university spokesman.
Spokesman Bill Robinson said in an email that the male student was shot somewhere in the town of Princess Anne and treated and released from a local hospital. He declined to provide further details on the incident, referring questions to the Princess Anne police.
An on-call officer at the Princess Anne police department said he had no information on the incident and that other officials were unavailable for comment.
Another UMES student, Edmond A. St. Clair, 21, was fatally stabbed on campus in February. His case remains unsolved.
The injured student lives off campus, Robinson said. The Daily Times of Salisbury reported that the student was shot in the leg while trying to break up a fight at about 4:15 a.m., and that the incident may have occurred at the Somerset County Office Complex.
The Daily Times also reported that some students were frustrated that the university has not released more information on the shooting after an initial message informing them that suspects in the shooting were on the loose.
