Fatal shooting on Grambling State University campus

Campus Shooting

When police arrived to the scene after getting a call from a distraught student, Andrews and Caldwell were already deceased.

Thankfully, in Howard's case, no evidence was found that pointed to a shooting.

A manhunt was under way Wednesday for a suspect in the shooting deaths of two men on a university campus in northern Louisiana.

The suspect is still at large. "It appears the victims and the suspect knew each other, and there was obviously bad blood". The local sheriff's department has taken over the investigation from campus police.

The sheriff's also said, "Investigators are in the process of gathering evidence, interviewing persons and securing warrants".

The university tweeted that the campus offices are open on Wednesday and that "students are expected to attend class as scheduled".

Andrews' brother, Ledarius Heard, told the Associated Press, "Earl didn't bother nobody", and added that he didn't believe Andrews was having any interpersonal trouble.

The incident occurred as the university, a historically black college with about 4,500 students, celebrates its Homecoming this week.

"This is a frightful tragedy".

The victims' families are now in mourning.

A shooting at the Grambling State University (GSU) in Louisiana around midnight Tuesday claimed two lives, it has been reported. We always encourage our students to be safe, to be aware, to watch who they hang out with, and to watch who's around at all times. "This is a most unfortunate situation".
