After the Oct. 3 campus shooting that injured five people, Morgan State University announced a plan to extend campus barriers with a new security wall. The Baltimore, Md., university’s president, David Wilson, revealed the security strategy during a campus town hall meeting, ABC News reports. The wall would add roughly 8,000 feet (2,400 meters) to an existing barrier, which would cover 90 percent of the campus.

In addition to the wall, university officials are implementing significant security upgrades, including more metal detectors, increasing police patrols and adding security guard booths. 

According to the Baltimore Sun, the shooting occurred near the Murphy Fine Arts Center, where Mr. and Miss Morgan State University were crowned that evening. NBC News reported that police said the five victims were unintended targets in a dispute likely between two small groups.
