LOS ANGELES (AP) – The University of Southern California has beefed up security measures following a campus shooting last week that wounded four people.

The Los Angeles Times says USC announced Tuesday that only students, faculty, staff and their guests will be allowed on campus between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.

The school also is banning outside promoters from working on social events held at campus facilities or nearby Fraternity Row.

Four people – none of them USC students – were wounded when an argument broke out outside of a Halloween party held by the Black Student Assembly on campus. The party was promoted by a non-university firm.

A 19-year-old man was arrested. The shootings came six months after two graduate students from China were killed during a robbery near campus.
