CONWAY, SC - Authorities are searching for suspects involved in a shooting in Conway apartments on Wednesday afternoon, Conway Police said.

The incident involved a 21-year-old college student and happened around 3 pm at 374 Kiskadee Loop, which is just off of Wild Wing Blvd.

Coastal Carolina University issued an alert at 3:40 pm advising students in the area to stay indoors. But at 4:20 pm, the university told students the suspects were no longer in the area and the alert was canceled.

Michael Duong, age 21, of Pageland was shot during the incident in the multi-family development called Kiskadee Parke at Wild Wing. There's no word on his condition.

CCU authorities said that officials were looking for four men "armed and dangerous driving black SUV and white Toyota Forerunner."
