Police do not believe the shooter was a student at the school. Caldwell was not enrolled at the school, Sutton said.

The Washington Post reports that the murders have "shaken the campus, a small community of 5,188 mostly black students, where the loss of a student is 'truly a loss of a member of a family, ' said Richard J. Gallot Jr., the university's president. We will fully cooperate with the police investigation".
