Wound Two USC students were wounded, one critically, when gunshots were fired at a party near the campus early Sunday.

The shooting occurred about 2 a.m. at an apartment complex in the 1200 block of West 37th Place, said Los Angeles Police Officer Cleon Joseph.

Several students confronted a stranger who appeared to be stealing items. The stranger brandished a gun and fired multiple rounds, hitting a male student in the chest and wounding the hand of a female student.

The male student was reported to be in critical but stable condition after undergoing surgery at a hospital, Joseph said. The female student's injuries were non life-threatening. No names were released.

The shooter fled, and no arrests have been made, Joseph said.
