SC: Student killed in shooting at CCU housing complex

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - A Coastal Carolina University student has died after a shooting at an off-campus student housing complex, university officials confirmed early Wednesday.

Anthony Darnell Liddell, 19, a sophomore student from Bennettsville, died Tuesday as a result of a shooting incident at University Place residence hall, CCU spokeswoman Martha Hunn confirmed. A shooter is still at large this morning.

CCU Department of Public Safety Police Chief David Roper determined that because there is currently there is no apparent threat to students, faculty or staff, classes will be held on Wednesday as regularly scheduled.

The 911 call came in at about 7:22 p.m. Tuesday; campus police and Conway Police responded immediately and found the victim, who was transported to a nearby hospital, CCU spokeswoman Martha Hunn confirms.

Campus officials alerted students with an 'active shooter alert' via text message and e-mail. The message asked students to remain in their dorm rooms and classrooms.

The first alert issued by staff at the college at about 8 p.m. said a shooting incident occurred at University Place, an off-campus housing facility for students. A second alert was sent moments later to ensure that the shooting incident was "not ongoing," but the search for the suspect was continuing.

The suspect - which has not been given a good description yet - remains at large. The condition of the victim, their relationship to the shooter, or the motive for this supposed act of violence remain unanswered questions.

The victim was brought to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center Tuesday evening. Security was out patrolling the exits and entrances while WMBF News crews were there at about 9 p.m. More than a handful of CCU students were waiting inside the waiting room of the trauma center.

"CCU Counseling Services professionals and ministers will be on hand Wednesday at CCU's Lackey Chapel beginning at 8 a.m. to provide assistance to students," Hunn stated in a news release. "Counseling staff will also be available at the Grand Strand Activity House, located at University Place, and at Eaglin and Ingle residence halls. Counseling staff has also been assisting students at University Place since the incident was reported."

Students at Coastal Carolina University say shots were fired at building 114, or Grand Strand E, of University Place.

Possibly a young black man killed by another young black man.
