ORANGEBURG — Law enforcement officials said early Saturday morning that they have arrested a suspect in the fatal shooting of a student outside a dormitory at South Carolina State University.
The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division said in a news release that 19-year-old Justin Bernard Singleton of Charleston has been charged with murder in the death of 20-year-old Brandon Robinson. Singleton was taken into custody Saturday morning at an Orangeburg apartment complex.
Robinson died Friday afternoon after he was shot outside Hugine Suites. The university went on lockdown.
A law enforcement spokesman says Singleton is suspected of pulling the trigger. He declined to say if other suspects are still being sought.
South Carolina State University is a historically black university with about 3,200 students in Orangeburg, about 40 miles south of Columbia.
