Grambling State University Director of University Communications Will Sutton said the casualties were Earl Andrews, a senior at GSU, and Monquiarious Caldwell, who was not an understudy. The two men were 23 years of age and from Farmerville, Louisiana.
The two casualties were articulated dead at the scene.
“This is a repulsive disaster. Nothing that anyone would’ve ever needed to have happened,” Sutton said in an on-camera proclamation early Wednesday. “Our petitions are with the casualties and their families.
There’s no place for viciousness on Grambling State University grounds. We generally urge our understudies to be sheltered, to know, watch who they hang out with, and watch who’s around consistently. This is most sad.”
The Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Department disclosed to ABC News that it is helping grounds police with the examination.
The grounds was not put on lockdown after the occurrence, but rather understudies were encouraged to remain inside and stay cautious.
