2 killed in shooting on Grambling State University campus

Shortly after the altercation, the suspect quickly fled the scene. Grambling State University did not address the shooting directly on its social media pages, but said Wednesday morning that offices and buildings will be open.

Earl Andrews, a 23-year-old senior, and his friend Monquiarious Caldwell, also 23, were both pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Washington Post.

The shooting occurred as students celebrated the university's Homecoming, the Monroe News Star reported.

Lincoln Parish Sheriff's spokesman Stephen Williams says detectives are at the scene of the double homicide, assisting campus police, after getting 911 calls starting at 12:04 a.m. Wednesday.

Darjeeling: Pollice officer killed in clashes with GJM faction
Restrictions have been imposed on entry to the village, a Gurung stronghold, and police are conducting raids in the area. The incident comes soon after a sub-inspector was killed in a clash between police and alleged supporters of Gurung.

It is not immediately clear as to why Caldwell was present inside the university campus at that hour or what his relation to Andrews is.

Officials have told students that the shooting wasn't the act of a domestic terrorist or a lone wolf, but rather that it was a targeted killing spurred by a dorm room altercation. "Nothing that anybody would've ever wanted to have happened", said Grambling State University Director of University Communications Will Sutton.

"Our prayers go out to the victims and their families". Two students were killed after firing at Grambling University campus.

The campus was not put on lockdown following the incident, but students are being advised to stay inside.
