ELIZABETH CITY, NC-Two teenagers are charged in the off-campus shooting of an Elizabeth City State University student.

University police responded to a large crowd outside Williams Hall gym just before 8:00 p.m. Thursday. Investigators determined a student was chased by the four men, who aren't ECSU students, to a public street, Hoffler Street, and was shot there.

Police spotted the suspects' getaway car on William J. and Helen Muldrow Way, near Griffin Hall and the Thomas-Jenkins Building where University Police is housed.

The student remains hospitalized in stable condition.

The two people inside were taken by City police and warrants for attempted first degree murder were obtained for two 17-year-olds: Rayshaun Maurice Baum and Kahari Hopson.

Police say neither of the suspects are ECSU students.

The student remains hospitalized in stable condition.

University officials say emergency notifications informed students, staff, and faculty of the matter and that persons had been taken into custody. They said there was no danger Friday.

Meantime, the investigation into a motive for the shooting continues. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Capt. John Young with the EC Police Department, 252-335-4321 or ECSU Chief John Manley, 252-335-3266.
