To think she could have been at the unsanctioned event where shots rang out early Saturday morning makes Zoe Umeorah uneasy.
“I wasn’t actually there but me and my friends were gonna go,” said Umeorah. “We heard about it because people kept posting on Snapchat ‘don’t come don’t come there was a shooting three people got shot.'”
The university confirmed one of the victims is a student. All three are currently in stable condition, one out of the hospital but that doesn’t mean all students feel safe.
“Kids shouldn’t have to walk around campus fearing for their lives,” said Umeorah.READ MORE: Maryland Weather: Flash Flood Watch Issued For Central Maryland
“I would say I still feel safe throughout the days,” said Wesley Lancaster. The response to this violence tore Lancaster from a sound sleep. “I woke up when it happened all these sirens coming in.”
When he learned about the shooting, he started noticing more police.
“We definitely saw a few cops and saw an increased police presence the day of,” Lancaster added.
The university said the party was not sanctioned or approved by the school. They don’t know the group who threw the party but said they’re trying to help students cope with the aftermath.
