Winston-Salem Police and Wake Forest University Police are investigating a shooting at The Barn on campus that occurred around 1 a.m. Jan. 20 in which a person was injured and taken to a hospital. Police do not believe the suspect in the shooting remained on campus.

Police have increased patrols of the campus and nearby areas.

The Wake Forest campus is open.

No one is permitted to come to The Barn area. Residents of Palmer and Piccolo should go to the University Police Department in Alumni Hall if they are trying to return to their residence hall.
