COPY-Officials: 3 shot, injured at Delaware State cookout

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware State University officials say three people have been shot at a student event.

School spokesman Carlos Holmes said the shooting happened at about 8 p.m. Saturday at a school-sanctioned fraternity and sorority cookout.

Holmes said three people were taken to Kent General Hospital in Dover with injuries that were not life-threatening. University president Harry L. Williams said in a news release that the people's names have not been released and it isn't clear whether they were Delaware State students.

Williams said no arrests had been made as of 11 p.m. Saturday. Holmes said students were told to stay inside their dormitories and non-students were asked to leave campus.

Holmes said the DSU police are leading the investigation.
