      A 20-year-old D.C.man is in custody for the shooting of a football player on the campus of Morgan State University in Baltimore.

      Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says the shooting happened around 1 p.m. Friday near a residence hall. A spokesman for the university identified the victim of the shooting as a football player, and police say his injuries are not life-threatening.

      Police also recovered a weapon.

      Keith Robertson of the 4900 block of G Street is charged with "attempted first degree murder, assault and various handgun related charges", police say.

      Robertson confessed to the crime, investigators add. They believe the shooting stemmed from a previous dispute.

      A shooting on the campus in September also injured one person.

      The school, a historically black university, has an enrollment of approximately 6,000.

      This is the second shooting on the Morgan State campus this year. On Sept. 12, a person was shot inside the school's student center. Six days later, a 20-year-old man was arrested in connection with the shooting.
