Three people were shot dead and one injured in a shooting near a university campus in Baltimore, said US police.

Detective Rashawn Strong said in a statement that officers responded on Tuesday night to a shooting reported in a residential neighborhood blocks from the University of Maryland campus in Baltimore, some 45 miles (70 kilometers) north of Washington.

Strong says officers found three people with gunshot wounds. One man was pronounced dead and another man and a woman were taken to a hospital, where they died.

Strong says another woman who walked into a hospital with a gunshot wound is listed in stable condition.

A statement on the school's website says campus police reported that two gunmen in two vans fired into a group of people.

A spokesman for the university says there's no indication students were involved.
