Two people are dead, following a shooting at the Grambling State University in Louisiana.
The Lincoln Parish Sheriff's Office, which is the lead agency in the investigation, has neither confirmed nor denied the identity of the victims.
Sheriff Mike Stone said in a statement that the suspect and victims knew each other "to some extent" and stressed that the shooting wasn't random or an act of terrorism.
Grambling State University Director of University Communications Will Sutton said the casualties were Earl Andrews, a senior at GSU, and Monquiarious Caldwell, who was not an understudy. Police were on the scene assisting campus police.
A shooting at the Grambling State University (GSU) in Louisiana around midnight Tuesday claimed two lives, it has been reported. Caldwell was not a student at the university, Sutton added.
The 23-year-old victims died at the scene, and police say one was a student.
"This a awful tragedy, nothing that anyone would ever to want to happen", says Sutton. "Violence has no place on our campus", said Sutton. We always encourage our students to be safe, be aware, watch who they hang out with, and watch who is around at all times.
The campus has not been placed on lockdown following the shooting, but students have been advised to stay inside and be vigilant.
Shortly after the altercation, the suspect quickly fled the scene. "This is a most unfortunate situation".
