A wall will be constructed around Morgan State University after five people, including four students, were shot at the Baltimore campus last week, according to school leaders.
University President David Wilson announced Tuesday that the college would be investing $22 million in security upgrades, including the construction of an 8,000-foot-long barrier to “eliminate unfettered access” to the school, the Associated Press reported.
Along with the wall, which will encircle 90% of the campus, Morgan State officials touted plans to install more metal detectors, more police patrols and more security guard booths on campus to ensure students’ safety.
The shooting, which took place during homecoming week, left four student’s wounded, with the shooters still on the loose.
Baltimore police have since released surveillance footage of four suspects walking around the campus, appearing to flee after the gunfire rang out.
