AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Richmond County deputies and Paine College police are investigating a shooting that happened Sunday on campus. 

Deputies responded to Gray Hall, a male residence hall, around 4:45 p.m. to a report of shots fired inside the building, according to an incident report. 

Two victims told deputies that they were coming down the stairs to the lobby of Gray Hall when they saw two men with a gun, according to the report. They heard multiple gun shots and started running toward the front door. 

The men continued to fire shots outside the building, according to the report. One of the victims was hit in the shoulder by fragments, and the other victim injured his hand when he fell to the ground while running.

The campus was placed on lockdown, but was later deemed safe, university officials said.

The suspects in the shooting are not students at the college, officials said.

More details will be released as the investigation continues.
