2 people are dead after an altercation escalated inside of a dorm room on a U.S. college campus. Now, police say the shooter is still at large. The incident happened at Grambling State University in Louisiana.
The incident happened at about midnight on Tuesday. Police reported receiving 911 calls and immediately responded to the scene. At this time, the victims are being identified as Earl Andrews, and the other was Monquiarius Caldwell, both 23 and from Farmerville, Louisiana.
"It was an altercation that started inside one of the dorm rooms and spilled out into the courtyard," a spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office said. "We're interviewing witnesses."
"This is not a random act, nor an act of terrorism," Sheriff Mike Stone said. "It appears the victims and the suspect knew each other and there was obviously bad blood. It's a tragedy."
The shooting is the second on the GSU campus in five weeks. On Sept. 21, a student was shot in the upper arm following an argument and subsequent fight in a campus dorm room, according to KTVB.com. The school is currently celebrating homecoming week.
At this time, police have identified the shooter though they have not released the name of the person. They are confident they are working t the best of their ability to ensure safety and justice are brought to the community.
"Our prayers go out to the victims and their families," Grambling’s spokesperson said. "Violence has no place on our campus. We will fully cooperate with the police investigation."
