A shooting over a dice game at Tennessee State University late Thursday in Nashville left a 19-year-old man dead and three others wounded. It was the second shooting in a week.

Authorities told The Tennessean that the suspect remained at large and the shooting remained under investigation.

Nashville Metro Police spokesman Don Aaron said several people were involved in a dice game in a courtyard near Floyd-Payne Campus Center when a fight started about 10:50 p.m. At one point, someone pulled out a gun and fired several rounds, wrote The Tennessean.

Authorities said the 19-year-old who died at the scene was not a student at Tennessee State. Three 18-year-old women who were passing by were struck by gunfire.

Aaron said one woman was grazed by a bullet and did not seek medical attention. Two women were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, said Emmanuel Freeman, a university spokesman.

Kelli Sharpe, a Tennessee State spokeswoman, told CNN that the incident happened as students gathered where two men, who were not enrolled at the school, were gambling.

Thursday's shooting happened after Tennessee State officials met with community supporters and police the day before about safety around campus.

A suspect still remains at large after a shooting during a house party near the university last week, said The Tennessean. One person who was shot in the head.
