Two people suffered non-life threatening injuries after gunshots were fired on the Southeastern Louisiana University campus. The incident occurred overnight and was confirmed by the SLU Police Department early Friday morning.
Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards released a statement earlier today saying, “As we await more details, I encourage students, faculty and parents to continue to pay close attention to information from school officials and local law enforcement, and would remind them to report any suspicious activity to the proper authorities.”
It is unknown whether those injured were students at the university, but they were taken to a nearby hospital. The Associated Press reported that SLU spokeswoman Erin Cowser said the shooting involved students and people who do not attend the school.
Police are investigating. Information regarding the situation is still scarce. Currently, there are no suspects in custody and there is no present threat to the campus community.
