Student shot at Widener

CHESTER, Pa. -

Authorities say a shooting on the campus of a university in Chester County does not appear to be a random act of violence and classes will resume Tuesday morning as the search for the gunman continues.

Police say a gunman shot a student sitting in the parking lot of Widener University's athletic center Monday night.

Officials say the student is in critical, but stable condition at Crozer-Chester Medical Center Tuesday after undergoing surgery.

Widener asked students to remain inside until 6 a.m. Tuesday as police continue searching for the suspect, but the university says that the campus was secured by police.

Chester Police Chief Joseph Bail says there is a strong police presence at the university and students just need to be careful.
