2 people shot dead at Louisiana's Grambling State University, suspect sought

Two people are dead, and the search for a suspect is ongoing after a fatally shooting early Wednesday morning on the campus of Grambling State University.

One of the victims was identified as Earl Andrews, 23, a student at the university, Grambling State University Media Relations Director Will Sutton told local news outlets.

In order to keep students safe, the sheriff has made plans for "extra patrol on and around GSU campus for the foreseeable future".

Based on preliminary information gathered at the scene, the shooting followed an altercation, which started inside one of the dormitories, said Williams. The suspect fled the scene, spurring a manhunt that prompted a call for students to stay indoors.

The Lincoln Parish Sheriff's Office, which is the lead agency in the investigation, has neither confirmed nor denied the identity of the victims. "Both men were 23 years old and from Farmerville, Louisiana", according to a report from ABC News.

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.

The victims' families are now in mourning.

It was homecoming week at the school, where a man was shot in the arm just last month. There is no place for violence on the GSU campus.
