(CNN) - Police are searching for a gunman who opened fire and injured four students during a college block party in Atlanta.

Atlanta police on Wednesday released video of the suspected gunman. He wore a white T-shirt, gray sweat pants, a tan Gucci hat and gray New Balance sneakers, police said.

Atlanta Police responded to a report of multiple people shot just after 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, authorities told CNN. Police from Clark Atlanta University and Spelman College were giving aid to three wounded women.

The students were attending a block party in front of the Robert W. Woodruff Library on the Atlanta University Center campus when an argument broke out and an unknown shooter opened fire into the crowd of about 200 people, preliminary police reports indicate.

The three women were transported from the scene to a local hospital where they received care for non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. The fourth woman, who was also at the block party, arrived at Grady Memorial Hospital, where she was treated for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.

All four women are in stable condition, police said.

The women were not the intended targets, said police, who have made no arrests.

Two of the women attend Spelman and two are students at Clark Atlanta, police said. Three of the women are 18 years old and one is 19 years old.

Spelman and Clark Atlanta are two of four colleges comprising the Atlanta University Center Consortium.

Spelman President Dr. Mary Schmidt Campbell said the college is cooperating with police and reviewing safety measures for the entire community.

Interim President of Clark Atlanta Lucille H. Maugé said in a statement that the dean of student affairs and the university chaplain were at the hospital and checked on injured students who remained there for observation.
