Shooting at York University

York University says it has resumed normal operations after two women were injured during a shooting at its campus in north Toronto.

The university says the shooting took place at its student centre late Thursday night.

Police say one woman was shot and suffered serious but non life-threatening injuries.

They say the second woman suffered minor injuries after being hit by shrapnel.

Toronto police are investigating, but there's no word yet on a possible suspect.

The shooting prompted a campus lockdown which was lifted at about 1 a.m.
