Player's injuries not life-threatening
BALTIMORE -- A suspect is in custody after a Morgan State football player was shot on the university's campus in Baltimore.
The gunman is not a Morgan State student, according to the university.
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says the shooting happened around 1 p.m. ET Friday near a residence hall. A spokesman for the university identified the victim as a football player, and police say his injuries are not life-threatening.
An eyewitness told the Baltimore Sun she watched a teammate take off the victim's shirt and apply pressure to his wounded leg until paramedics arrived.
"It looks as if it grew from a dispute between two individuals," university spokesman Clint Coleman told the newspaper, "and that dispute resulted in one person being shot."
Police also recovered a weapon.
A shooting on the campus in September also injured one person.
Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
