The Lincoln Parish Sheriff's Office is leading the investigation.

Police say the shooting began as "an altercation that started inside one of the dorm rooms and spilled out into the courtyard".

Sheriff Mike Stone said in a statement that the suspect and victims knew each other "to some extent" and stressed that the shooting wasn't random or an act of terrorism.

Those shot dead were Earl Andrews, 23, and Monquiarius Caldwell, 23, while the perpetrator, an unknown individual, fled the scene, the news outlet specified. Caldwell was not enrolled at the school, Sutton said. Both men were 23 years old and from Farmerville, Louisiana.


According to ABC News, the suspect is at large following the incident, which occurred on Wednesday morning.

Williams told CBS that a few witnesses have come forward to help with the investigation and police are still trying to piece together what happened.

"This is a terrible tragedy".

"It's a terrible thing to happen on any day of the week, any week", Sutton said.


"Our prayers go out to the victims and their families".

An unknown perpetrator of an argument that escalated into a shooting at Grambling State University in the U.S. state of Louisiana fled the scene. "This is a most unfortunate situation".

The grounds was not put on lockdown after the occurrence, but rather understudies were encouraged to remain inside and stay cautious.
