    Police search for Delaware State University shooter

    CNN) -- Police in Dover searched a locked down campus Friday for a man suspected in the shooting of two Delaware State University students, the school said.

    Delaware State University classes were canceled Friday after two students were shot and wounded.

    A male student who was shot is in stable condition, the university said in a statement, and a female student's condition is "considered serious."

    "I think he's out of danger," university spokesman Carlos Holmes told reporters Friday. "I can't say the same thing for the female student."

    No one is being allowed in or out of campus dormitories while university and city police pursue the suspect, the school statement said. The school houses about 1,700 students.

    The on-campus shooting occurred at about 1 a.m. ET, near Memorial Hall, said the school, which has canceled classes for Friday.

    "Until the suspect is apprehended, students, faculty and staff are being directed to remain in their buildings until further notice," the university said.

    Police said they planned to interview the victims for more information, according to The Associated Press. "We haven't had a chance to talk to them yet, and that's probably a big reason why the suspect is still at large," said Holmes on KYW-TV, according to AP.

    Immediately after the shooting, Holmes said, the university posted "timely warning notifications" in residential halls, on Web sites and on campus phone messages.

    "Any time you pick up a phone you automatically hear a message that lets you know the situation," Holmes said. "We've used everything we have at our disposal."

    An investigation report released in August criticized officials at Virginia Tech University after the shooting deaths of dozens of students there. The report said the university failed to provide enough immediate information on the day of the April 16 campus attack.

    Seung-Hui Cho, 23, killed 32 students and staff before taking his own life. Seventeen others were wounded in the shootings.

    Delaware State University is about two hours away from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Baltimore, Maryland; and Washington, and three hours away from New York City

    We need more people to spin this type of story around "Oh wait, another criminal disobeyed the laws and took a gun on campus to commit a crime, so the only thing the laws did do, was leave some law abiding citizens defenseless"
