A student and a campus visitor were fatally shot at Grambling State University, and the gunman is on the loose, officials said Wednesday.
The authorities began receiving calls just after midnight reporting shots fired on the historically black university campus in northern Louisiana. Campus police found two males on the ground in a residential courtyard, a school spokesman said.
Earl Andrews, a 23-year-old Grambling senior, and his friend, Monquiarious Caldwell, also 23, were both pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.
“An unknown suspect shot the two of them and fled,” said Will Sutton, the university’s director of communications.
The shooter remains at large, a Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman said.
