Two women were wounded in a shooting at a campus of New River Community College in Christiansburg, in southwestern Virginia, and the suspected shooter is in custody, police said.

The shooting took place at the school's satellite campus at the New River Valley Mall. One of the victims was airlifted and the second was taken by ambulance to a hospital, the Christiansburg Police Department said in a statement.

"We have no information on their identities or present conditions. The suspected shooter was taken into custody," it said.

The mall was cleared of shoppers. Montgomery County Schools were briefly locked down as a precaution, it said.

It was the second shooting scare at a US college on Friday. Earlier, North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro was locked down for several hours after reports of a gunman near a classroom building.

That lockdown was later lifted with no shots fired.
