WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Waco Police have made an arrest in a murder that prompted a lockdown at Baylor University on Thursday afternoon.

Tyrell Jordan Dever, 26, of Waco has been arrested in the murder of Frederick Lee Clark of Waco, which occurred on S. Ninth Street and Garrett around 2:15 p.m. 

According to police, the suspect approached a group of men in a vacant lot near S. Ninth street and Garrett, and then opened fire - hitting one man.

The victim was taken to Hillcrest Hospital with serious injuries. 

In a message from the university, Baylor said a possible suspect was seen walking toward campus near Ivy and Seventh streets.

The suspect was described as a young man with a fade haircut and wearing a white tank top and tan shorts.

Baylor Police and Waco Police are conducting a joint search to find the suspect. 

If you have any information on the incident, call 254-710-222

Waco Police are working the case as a murder. They do not believe it was a random shooting, and they do not think there is a threat to the community.

Baylor posted this warning to staff and students on Facebook immediately after the shooting: 

All faculty, staff and students are advised to seek shelter immediately while police search for a suspected shooter. The shooting occurred at 9th and Garrett off campus. Avoid this area until further notice, and seek shelter in the building nearest to you. If possible, lock doors and windows. Remain indoors until an official “all clear” announcement is issued. More information to come.
