TOWSON, Md. (AP) — Police in Maryland say three people were wounded early Saturday in a shooting on the campus of Towson University.

The Baltimore County Police Department issued a news release saying the victims included one student and two people who don’t attend the school.

"I visited with her and her family, along with Vice President Vernon Hurte, at the hospital early Saturday morning to offer our support and we are staying in close contact with them. Her condition is stable and she was in good spirits. The best news of all is that she is looking forward to a full recovery very soon," said President Kim Schatzel, Ph.D.

All three are in stable condition.

The news release says the three were shot around 2 a.m. at the public university north of Baltimore.

Police say that the shooting was at a gathering on campus and is considered an isolated occurrence.

The police didn’t immediately release further information about what led to the shooting or whether suspects have been identified.

"As I told our young student while visiting her hospital room on Saturday morning, our entire campus community will rally behind her, and TU will place all of its resources before its students to provide them support. As they have throughout the day, staff through the Division of Student Affairs, Counseling Center and Residence Life is on campus and providing support for our students and community. Counseling and support services are available through the TU Counseling Center at 410-704-2512," said the university.
