World :: Second shooting at Virginia State University

For the second time in less than a week, Virginia State University is on lockdown after a shooting on campus.

Sources told CBS Richmond affiliate WTVR-TV a man was shot in the stomach behind a VSU building late Thursday night.

Sources said a crowd of approximately 200 people was dispersed by police after the shooting. There was no word why the group had gathered.

There was no initial indication of the condition of the victim.

The latest shooting comes after a man not a VSU student -- was shot on campus Saturday night  during homecoming weekend. Police said he was hospitalized with non-life-threatening wounds.

The campus was placed on lockdown for more than four hours. The suspect in that shooting is still at large.
