CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Authorities say a student at Widener University in suburban Philadelphia is being treated at a local hospital after he was shot on campus and the university warned students to remain indoors while police search for the suspected shooter.

The school said on its website that the student was shot near the Schwartz Athletic Center on the school’s campus around 8:45 p.m. Monday.

A nursing supervisor at Crozer Chester Medical Center says that the victim was in surgery late Monday night. The university said the student’s family has been notified.

Widener is a private, co-ed university located in Chester, Pennsylvania located about 15 miles southwest of Philadelphia.

The university also has three other campuses in Harrisburg, Exton and Wilmington, Delaware.
