One man was killed and three women were wounded in a shooting late Thursday on the campus of Tennessee State University, police said.
Witnesses said an argument broke out over a dice game that initially led to a fistfight when “suddenly shots were fired,” Metro Nashville Police spokesman Don Aaron said.
The 19-year-old who died in the shooting was not enrolled at the school, according to police. It wasn’t clear whether the shooter, who fled the scene, was a student, though WZTV reported police don’t believe the gunman was enrolled at the university.
Three female students, who Aaron said were passers-by, were struck during the shooting. One was grazed and didn’t require any medical attention, while two others were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with injuries. One had been released by Friday morning, while the other was in stable condition and was expected to make a full recovery, Aaron said.
Police also offered a reward for tips leading to the capture of the suspected gunmen.
“At least 2 gunmen involved in TSU shooting. Know them? 615-742-7463–$6,000 reward offered,” the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department tweeted along with the black-and-white video of the shooting. Source: Fox News/AP
