ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina State University has stepped up training for officers and has improved security systems following a deadly shooting earlier this year.

The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg ( reports that junior Brandon Robinson was shot and killed in January on campus following an argument with another man.

Campus Police Chief Gregory Harris says the university has been carrying out training and drills so the campus can be quickly locked down.

At the time of the shooting, security was operating on several different radio frequencies. Now there is one frequency and security cameras are now placed across campus.

But Harris says the university could still use more equipment and personnel. He says there is only one siren to alert the campus but that at least three are needed.
