Bowie State Cancels Classes For Week Following Shooting

(Bowie, MD) — Classes are being canceled for the rest of the week at Bowie State University in Maryland following a weekend shooting that left two teens wounded. BSU officials announced today classes will not be held so as to provide time for “everyone to address their mental well-being.” Saturday night’s shooting happened at the end of homecoming week festivities at Maryland’s oldest historically Black university. It occurred less than a week after gunfire left five young people injured at a homecoming event at Morgan State University, another HBCU in Baltimore. Police have not made any arrests in either shooting.
