A 21-year-old man has been charged with murder for Sunday morning’s fatal shooting on the campus of Winston-Salem State University in North Carolina.

A statement from the Winston-Salem police obtained by PEOPLE confirms the arrest of Jarrett Jerome Moore, a 21-year-old former student at the school from Charlotte. He faces one count of murder and another for possessing a weapon on school grounds.

The shooting happened just before 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, and resulted in a school lockdown that lasted more than three hours, according to the statement.

Moore allegedly shot and killed 19-year-old student Anthony White, Jr., also from Charlotte, in a parking lot outside the school’s dormitories, the statement says.

Another student, who has not been identified by police, was also shot Sunday but is expected to recover from his wounds.

Police are still investigating possible motives for the shooting, according to the statement. Moore is being held without bond, and has yet to appear before a judge to enter a plea.
