One person was shot in the parking deck of Georgia Gwinnett College, the school said.

Around 2 p.m., a 911 call was placed from the roof of a parking deck, the college posted on its Facebook page.

“The individual was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center and the condition is unknown at this time,” the college stated.

The campus, located in Lawrenceville, was not placed on lockdown because college leaders determined it was an isolated incident. The weapon was found at the scene, the college said.

Georgia Gwinnett College campus police requested assistance from the GBI with the investigation. It was not known if the injury was self-inflicted.

No further details were released.
