One killed, two hurt in shooting at Tennessee college campus: authorities


One person was killed and two others were wounded by gunfire on the campus of Tennessee State University in Nashville late on Thursday, police said.

The shootings, which occurred just before 11 p.m. local time, appeared to have stemmed from a dispute over a dice game in an outdoor courtyard, the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said.  

The male who died was not enrolled at the school, a university spokeswoman said. Police have not said whether the other individuals involved were students or visiting the campus.

It was unclear if a suspect was in custody.

The three gunshot victims were transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, said Tanya Stone, operations supervisor for the Metro Nashville emergency communication center.

The two who survived had injuries not considered life-threatening, the Tennessean newspaper reported.

Last week, three people were shot and wounded during a large house party near the Tennessee State University campus.

The incidents come amid a string of gun violence at or near several U.S. schools in October, including deadly incidents on the campus of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff and adjacent to Texas Southern University in Houston.

On Oct. 1, a gunman killed nine people at a community college in Oregon, ranking it among the deadliest of dozens of U.S. mass shootings in the past two years.

  1. A shoot-out over a crap game on a college campus?

    This says a lot about who’s enrolled in college these days, probably through some “affirmative action” program rather than being able to pass an entrance exam.

    Nobody with a brain in their head is involved in shoot-outs over crap games, but Tennessee State University doesn’t give a rat’s anus about what type of trash comprises their student body, as long as they rake in the government subsidies and student loan money.

    1. I do not profess to know the geography of the US at all well and I was just wondering if the number of shootings(reported or otherwise) have risen in the south of the country since the Dylan Roof/confederate flag carry on?

  2. Looks like the nwo jew criminals got the state of Tennessee under control: 3 shooting HOAXES in less than a year.
