GREENSBORO — Four N.C. A&T students were wounded Wednesday afternoon at an off-campus apartment, according to the university and media reports.
A&T said on its Twitter account that four of its students were injured in the shooting.

WGHP-Channel 8 reported that the shooting happened about 2 p.m. Wednesday at The Vic, a student apartment complex in the 700 block of Milton Street. The complex sits less than a mile from the UNCG campus and about 4 miles west of A&T.
The High Point TV station, citing a university spokesman, also reported that two students were in critical condition Wednesday night at a hospital but that the four wounded students, all men, are expected to survive.
It's unclear what might have prompted the shooting.
A&T said late Wednesday that two people, including the alleged shooter, had been taken into custody. But WGHP reported Wednesday night that Greensboro police had released the two people.
UNCG's student affairs office said on Twitter that no UNCG students were involved in Wednesday's incident.
