Two people were shot and killed early Wednesday morning at Grambling State University in Louisiana.
According to Grambling State University spokesman Will Sutton, the victims were identified as Earl Andrews, 23, a Grambling State University senior from Farmerville, Louisiana, and Monquiarius Caldwell, also a 23-year-old from Farmerville. Caldwell was not a student at the university.
Stephen Williams, a spokesman for the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office, said that Andrews and Caldwell were found in a courtyard between two dormitory buildings.
Media Relations Director Will Sutton said that the shooting happened during an altercation in the campus courtyard.
During that argument, Sutton said an unknown person shot Andrews and Caldwell before fleeing the scene. Grambling State’s Police Chief said that students reported hearing five or six shots fired. Sutton says GSU’s Police Chief received a phone call from a student to his cell phone and dispatched officers. Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene.
GSU campus police are working with the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office on the investigation. Investigators are currently reviewing surveillance footage.
Media Relations Director Sutton said all Homecoming activities and classes are scheduled to go on as normal.
The suspect has not yet been identified.
