Shooting at Bowie State University Disrupts Homecoming Weekend

A shooting incident occurred at Bowie State University in Maryland, disrupting the homecoming weekend festivities. The incident took place on Saturday around 11:30 p.m. at Henry Circle, a green grass area on the campus. Two individuals, identified as 19-year-old men, were injured in the shooting. Both victims were promptly taken to the hospital, where they received treatment for non-life-threatening injuries.

The identities of the injured individuals have not been disclosed. However, it has been confirmed that they are not students of Bowie State University or Morgan State University. The shooting at Bowie State comes shortly after a similar incident at Morgan State University, also located in Maryland.

In response to the shooting, Bowie State University canceled most of the scheduled homecoming events, with the exception of the football game. As a gesture of solidarity, Bowie State extended an invitation to Morgan State students, whose homecoming weekend had been canceled due to the previous shooting. Additionally, currently enrolled Morgan State students were offered tickets to the Bowie State football game on Saturday.

The shooting has led to the cancellation of classes at Bowie State on Monday, and counseling services have been made available to students. The Maryland State Police Criminal Enforcement Division is actively investigating the incident. Major Kenny Brown, Assistant Bureau Chief of the division, emphasized that there is no connection between the shootings at the two HBCU campuses.
