Person Who Murdered Two on Grambling State Campus Still Hasn't Been Found

Campus Shooting

Sheriff Mike Stone said in a statement that the suspect and victims knew each other "to some extent" and stressed that the shooting wasn't random or an act of terrorism.

Earl Andrews, a 23-year-old senior, and his friend Monquiarious Caldwell, also 23, were both pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Washington Post. Grambling State University did not address the shooting directly on its social media pages, but said Wednesday morning that offices and buildings will be open.

The Lincoln Parish Sheriff's Department disclosed to ABC News that it is helping grounds police with the examination.

When police arrived to the scene after getting a call from a distraught student, Andrews and Caldwell were already deceased.

"This a frightful tragedy, nothing that anyone would ever to want to happen", says Sutton.

"Our prayers go out to the victims and their families. Violence has no place on our campus", said Sutton. The campus was not placed on lockdown, and classes continued as normal for Grambling's roughly 5,000 students. "This is a most unfortunate situation".

The school issued an alert early Wednesday and the Twitter account for the GSU Residential Life warned students to remain in their residential halls.

"An unknown suspect shot the two of them and fled", said Will Sutton, the university's director of communications.
