ROCK HILL, S.C. (WBTV) - Two people were shot during a birthday party early Sunday morning at Clinton College.

College officials say the school’s gymnasium on the 1000 block of Crawford Road was being rented out when the shooting occurred, around 12:48 a.m.

Officers found an 18-year-old man who had been shot. Another 17-year-old victim was found at Piedmont Medical Center with a gunshot wound from the incident. Both victims are expected to be OK.

Clinton College said in a statement that no students, faculty or staff were hurt in the incident.

School policy states that “Private parties do not fall within the planned use of university space.”

WBTV has reached out to the college to ask why the party was allowed on-campus.

Rock Hill Police continue to investigate.
