One man has been killed and another injured in a shooting at a US university.

The fatal shooting occurred at Winston-Salem State University at 1am this morning.

The campus was placed on lockdown for approximately 3 hours before it reopened at 4:30am.

"The suspected gunman is not believed to be a current student. The campus has been cleared; the gunman has not been apprehended," said spokesman Aaron Singleton.

Police received a call from the school's campus police around 1:20 a.m. Winston-Salem city police are assisting campus police with an investigation.

The university sent out an all clear message on Twitter after having announced a campus lockdown in prior messages that called for people to shelter in place indoors.
