Police investigators searched Tuesday for a gunman who wounded two University of Notre Dame students as they stood outside a bar near the campus, authorities said.

The shooting happened about 1 a.m. Tuesday outside Club 23 several blocks south of Notre Dame campus. Police said a man who had an argument with the two students returned minutes later with two others in a vehicle and fired five shots at the men.

Witnesses were unable to give a detailed description of the man or the vehicle.

"We know that words were exchanged," city police Capt. Phil Trent said. "That's all we know."

Police said the injured students were Matthew J. Collins, 22, who was hospitalized in stable condition following surgery after being shot in the leg and abdomen, and Mitchell Depree, 21, who was treated and released from a hospital for a leg wound.

Police and residents said the shooting was out of character for the neighborhood.

"I'm amazed that happened around here," said Doug Knox, who lives nearby. "We haven't had anything like this."

Notre Dame officials said the school, which begins its fall semester next week, had offered assistance to the students' families.

"Our prayers are with these students and their families," Notre Dame's president, the Rev. John I. Jenkins, said in a statement.
