Louisiana: At least one dead, several injured in shooting at Grambling State University

One person was killed and several others were injured in a shooting at Grambling State University in Louisiana on Sunday, police said.

One person died, one was hospitalized in critical condition and six suffered non-life-threatening wounds, Louisiana State Police Master Trooper Michael Reichardt said.

Only one of the injured victims was a student.




“At this point, we have no suspect information for this shooting,” Reichardt said. “Our investigators are doing everything they can.”

Multiple shots were fired around 1:15am in the quad area of the university’s campus, Tisha Arnold, a spokesperson for the university said.

According to Arnold, the victim who died was not a student. The university has canceled classes until Monday.



The shooting occurred near a dining facility where a homecoming breakfast was being prepared, university President Rick Gallot said.

“No one is more concerned than I am right now,” he said. “Our students come here for an education, and far too often, it’s outsiders who have created this situation that has put life and limb in danger.”

The shooting came only three days after another fatal shooting on campus. Police are searching for a suspect in that case, which did not involve Grambling students.
