ORANGEBURG, S.C. - Update: Saturday Morning

The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division has charged 19-year-old Justin Bernard Singleton, of Charleston, with murder following the shooting death of a student at SC State University in Orangeburg.

According to arrest warrants Singleton is accused of shooting student 20-year-old Brandon Robinson. The warrants say the two were arguing on campus when Robinson was shot in the neck.


The university says Robinson was shot Friday afternoon at the Hugine Suites.

University President Thomas Elzey choked back tears as he promised to keep his students safe. He said the student killed was a nice young man.

Orangeburg County coroner says the victim is 20-year-old Brandon Robinson, an engineering major who also played football at the school.

Campus Police Chief Mernard Clarkson says police don't know what led to the shooting.

Clarkson says the campus is secure and students are safe.

South Carolina State is a historically black school with about 3,200 students in Orangeburg, about 40 miles south of Columbia.
