One person has been killed and another was injured in a shooting at Winston-Salem State University in North Carolina. The suspected perpetrator remains at large.

The incident was reported at about 1:20am local time, the school said in a Facebook post.

"We can confirm that there has been one fatality and one injured individual," the post said. "Both are believed to be students."

A lockdown was put on the campus 10 minutes later and remained in place for over three hours.

The gunman was described as a male, with the school calling on witnesses with any information to come forward.

Sunday's incident is the latest in a series of recent shootings on US campuses. On October 9, a gunman opened fire at Northern Arizona University, killing one and wounding three.
