Grambling State Police Continue Looking For Shooter

Posted: Updated:

GRAMBLING, La. (KNOE 8 News) - The search for suspects continues at Grambling State University after 3 students were shot in front of a dorm Monday night.

GSU students are going about their day, but some are walking around with a little more fear.

GSU freshman, Casandra Maine, says "I had walked outside and seen people running around. I asked what had happened." Maine was in her dorm room with friends when she learned, outside of the neighboring dorm, there was a shooting. Maine says, "I was very nervous. I didn't know what to do. The first thing I was like stay in my room."

Students say it's not unusual to have a group of people outside of Douglas Hall, sitting on their cars and listening to music. GSU freshman, Chelsea Chatman, says "there are usually a lot of people standing around sitting on cars, and listening to music. I've never heard of anyone getting shot."

Three students 19 year-old Tracy Green, 20 year-old Jarian Walker, and 21 year-old Brandon Cooper were shot. Police believe the shooting happened after a group of 40 to 50 people were outside the dorm, when a fight broke out.

University spokesperson, Will Sutton says, this week, security on campus has been increased. That's because an annual event is taking place on campus. The university has also added cameras to step up security, bringing the total to 260. Sutton says, "it definitely is aiding in the investigation, it was a very smart move."

Sutton says police are reviewing all footage. Police say there is no reason for anyone to be concerned; but students like Maine are being more cautious. Maine says, "you never know who's around, and who has what on them. So you have to be protected, and you can never go anywhere by yourself."

The three students have been released from the hospital. Their injuries were not serious.

Grambling State Police say they have things under control. If anyone has information they're urged to call police at (318) 274-2222.
