A shooting near Clark Atlanta University’s campus left four students injured late Tuesday night, WSBTV reports.

According to the news station, students were celebrating before the first day of classes when gunfire and chaos erupted at around 10:30 p.m. near a library that is used by students from Clark Atlanta, Spelman and Morehouse.

When police arrived at the scene, four women – two from Clark Atlanta and two from Spelman, were found injured.

The young women, ages 17 to 19, were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital where they were treated for their injuries and listed as being in stable condition.

One teen was shot in the chest, while another was shot in the leg. The remaining two students were grazed by bullets.

Police believe that some sort of confrontation resulted in the gunfire.

“It appears there were two separate groups that were targeting each other and the students in the crossfire,” Atlanta Police Capt. William Rucker told the news station.
