Suspect Charged With Murder In SC Campus Shooting
ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) — Law enforcement officials say they've arrested a suspect in the fatal shooting of a student outside a dormitory at South Carolina State University.
The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division says in a news release early Saturday that 19-year-old Justin Bernard Singleton of Charleston has been charged with murder in the death of 20-year-old Brandon Robinson. Singleton was taken into custody Saturday morning in Orangeburg, where he was being held.
Robinson died Friday afternoon after he was shot outside Hugine Suites. The university went on lockdown.
Authorities initially said they were looking for four men who had left campus. It wasn't immediately clear if other suspects were still being sought.
South Carolina State University is a historically black university with about 3,200 students in Orangeburg, about 40 miles south of Columbia.
