On Friday, CNN reported that three people were shot on the campus of Tennessee State University in Nashville Thursday night.

Tanya Stone, Operations supervisor for the Metro Nashville emergency communication center said authorities transported all three victims with gunshot wounds to a Nashville hospital.

Just last week, there was another shooting at an off-campus party across the street from the school which resulted in three students being injured from gun wounds and others quickly running for safety.

Tennessee State University police dispatchers said they could not release any information on the latest incident. It is still unclear as to whether the shooter is still on the loose.

Students of the school also took to Twitter with the campaign #PrayForTSU.


UPDATE via CNN- 1:55 p.m. Friday, October 23

Authorities say the shooting left one person dead, and two injured reportedly over a dice game. The person who died from the shooting was not a student. Two students face non-life threatening injuries.
