A Grambling State University shooting on Wednesday morning left two men dead, and the killer is still at large, CNN reported.
One of the victims, 23-year-old Earl Andrews, was a student at the university and the second victim, who was not a student from the university, has been identified as Monquiarius Caldwell, a 23-year-old from Farmerville, CNN reported.
Their bodies were found in a courtyard between two dormitory buildings.
Lincoln Parish Sheriff's spokesman, Stephen Williams, said the shooting arose from an altercation that began inside one of the adjacent dormitories, CNN noted.
A female student called the Grambling State University police chief on his cell phone.
Williams said the crime scene was still being processed and investigators were working with the university to piece together how the shooting had occurred, CBS News reported.
He said police were developing their leads and liaising with potential witnesses who had come forward.
Grambling State University Director of University Communications, Will Sutton, described the events as a horrible tragedy.
"Our prayers are with the victims and their families," he said, per ABC News.
"There’s no place for violence on Grambling State University campus. We always encourage our students to be safe, to be aware, watch who they hang out with, and watch who’s around at all times. This is a most unfortunate situation."
Meanwhile, social media has been flooded with tributes from members of the public.
One of Andrew’s friends recalled a haunting moment when he contacted her and said he was so happy to make it to 23 because he felt as if somebody was going to take him away.
A friend of Monquiarious Caldwell remembered special moments she shared with him.
