Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

A shooting at a Halloween party at the Ronald Tutor Campus Center on Wednesday night left four wounded and one victim in critical condition.

Gunshots rang out at a Halloween party at USC's Ronald Tutor Campus Center at approximately 11:30 p.m. PT on Wednesday night leaving four victims wounded and one victim in critical condition, according to the LAPD. None of the victims were affiliated with the university.

Students were issued a Trojan Alert at 12:02 a.m. by USC's Department of Public Safety, asking them to "take shelter in place and avoid opening doors for unknown persons." The Campus was later shut down, and a suspect was taken into custody at 1:30 a.m.

An eyewitness account via the Daily Trojan:

"I heard three gun shots but I think it's because - there might have been more than that but maybe because of all the people screaming made it so I couldn't hear," said Christina Nour, a freshman majoring in civil engineering building science. "Then I ducked. It didn't feel real. It felt like it was a movie because I really haven't experienced anything like this before. I was running as fast as I can trying to make sure I didn't get trampled or tripped. I just ran as fast as I could, as far as I could. Then I met up with the friends I came with. It was just really crazy."

The university has not issued a statement on the shooting at this time.
