The campus is put on lockdown around 1:10 p.m.

A shooting near the USC Upstate in Spartanburg led to several buildings on the campus being placed on lockdown Tuesday afternoon.

Witnesses described hearing five shots fired at the Campus Edge Apartments.

Kevin Bobo told the Associated Press that the shooting occurred at an apartment complex next to the school's campus and one person suffered a gunshot wound to the arm.

The spokeswoman said the victim's injuries do not appear life threatening.

In the most recent fiscal year, the Duchy generated £19.2 million ($25 million) in net income according to its website. But the revelations will no doubt raise questions about whether the monarch should be investing in offshore finance.

Another issue Bobo had was with USC Upstate's decision to lock down the campus.

The campus went into lockdown for about an hour. Bobo emphatically said it it "NOT on their campus, which means it is under the jurisdiction of the Sheriff's Office".

Officials at USC have claimed the suspect is a black male wearing khaki pants, a grey hoodie and carrying an automatic weapon.

Bobo said after the wounded man was taken to the hospital, he changed his account of what happened, and he is not cooperating with investigators.
