PRINCESS ANNE, Md. (AP/WJZ) — A student at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore was shot in the ankle over the weekend in an off-campus incident, No arrests have been made.

The student, Devin Johnson, was treated and released from Peninsula Regional Medical Center.

Police say several shots were fired Sunday morning on Somerset Avenue, and Johnson may have been wounded while trying to break up a fight.

Police say suspects and motives are unknown, and the investigation is ongoing.

Authorities said police were called to the Somerset County Office Complex about 4:15 a.m. Sunday. It was not clear if the shooting took place near the county building or if the victim had walked there.

A UMES alert was sent out at 5:07 a.m., urging students to be vigilant.
