Multiple shots were fired around 1:15 am. (2:15 am. EN) in the quad area of the university’s campus, according to Tisha Arnold, a spokesperson for the university. Several people were injured, including at least one enrolled student who was treated at the scene for non-life-threatening injuries.
One victim who was not a student died as a result of the shooting, Arnold said.
“Ten tyde van die voorval, a homecoming event was underway in McCall Dining Center. All persons present sheltered in place and were released once the all-clear was given by University Police,” Arnold told CNN in an email Sunday, adding that a suspect has not been identified at this time.
An active investigation by the Louisiana State Police is underway, Arnold said. The university has canceled all homecoming events Sunday and classes on Monday, according to a post on Twitter.
CNN has reached out to state police for more information about the shooting at Grambling University, which sits about 60 miles east of Shreveport.
