Gun violence at American schools at the college, university and K-12 is all too common these days. Overnight a student was shot at an off-campus housing unit near Coastal Carolina University, which is a liberal arts school located in Conway, South Carolina. There are more than 9,000 students attending the school, which was founded in 1954 as a Coastal Junior College later becoming an independent university.

The 19-year-old sophomore, a young black man named, Anthony Darnell Liddell, from Bennettsville, succumbed to his wounds after being shot multiple times at the University Place residence hall. University Place resident Kaitlin Eriksen told The Sun News of Myrtle Beach that she was inside her apartment when she heard four or five shots. Eriksen said she went to her balcony to see where the shots came from and saw a man fall against the back of a car’s rear window. “He took about two steps back and then collapsed. He just fell out there,” Eriksen said. Investigators are scrambling to make sense of the tragedy and possible motives.

University spokesperson, Martha Hunn said the gunman is still at large, and the Law Enforcement Division has taken over the investigation. Students were alerted by email and text message about the incident, and the residence halls were placed on lockdown. The school’s public safety department says that classes will continue on schedule as planned on Wednesday as there remains no clear threat to students, staff or faculty.

Since the Columbine High School shooting there have been 31 school shootings in the United States and only 14 in the rest of the world combined. America remains a violent nation.

  1. This is another sad story of a young student killed by to epidemic of senseless gun violence. Since the murder of Trayvon Martin, the gun violence and murders have continued to increase.

    Something is terribly wrong….it seems that guns have become the first resort to solving any disagreements. There must be more research into the causes of these problems.
