US police are hunting a gunman after two students were shot at Delaware State University, officials say.
People have been told to stay away from the university's Dover campus
A female student is in a serious condition and a male student is in a stable condition after the shooting at 0054 (0454 GMT), the university said.
The school has been locked down, with students and staff on campus told to remain inside buildings and classes cancelled for the day.
In April Seung-hui Cho killed 32 people in a shooting rampage at Virginia Tech.
Police said they hoped to gain more information on the male suspect when the victims - shot at the school's Memorial Hall - were able to speak.
"We haven't had a chance to talk to them yet, and that's probably a big reason why the suspect is still at large," Delaware State University spokesman Carlos Holmes told local television.
Students and staff who were not on the Dover campus at the time of the shooting have been told to stay away.
The university would still provide essential services to campus residents during the lock-down, it said.
