1 dead, 1 critical in second shooting at Grambling State University

A person was killed in a shooting early Sunday at Grambling State University in Louisiana just days after a person was killed in a similar incident on campus.

A shooting occurred at about 1:15 a.m. in the quad area at Grambling State University in Grambling, between Monroe and Shreveport, the school said in a statement. A person who was not an enrolled student died, and seven other people were injured, authorities said.

One person was in critical condition, and the other people suffered non-life-threatening injuries, Louisiana State Police said.

"At the time of the incident, a homecoming event was underway in McCall Dining Center," the statement said. "All persons present sheltered in place and were released once the all-clear was given by University Police."

State Police confirmed that detectives are investigating.

The school canceled its homecoming events Sunday and classes on Monday, offering counseling services to students and staff members.
