2 arrested in Southeastern Louisiana University campus shooting

2 arrested in Southeastern Louisiana University campus shooting

The two people wounded in a shooting on the Southeastern University campus are student-athletes, according to university officials.

According to the Associated Press, the incident happened near an assembly hall where basketball games are held.

Cowser says it appears that students were involved, but it is unclear whether the two people injured were students. On Friday, the university officials did not close the university and everyone proceeded with normal activities.

"Fortunately, they are not life-threatening gunshots, " university spokeswoman Tonya Lowentritt said earlier Friday morning.




Both of the victims received non-life-threatening wounds and were treated at a nearby hospital. The University Police stated that "It is investigating a report of gunshots near the University Center". Police are investing the matter and is yet to find any suspects.

In a tweet, the school authorities said that there was no threat to any student or staff.

The university in Hammond attracts a number of students from the New Orleans area, particularly neighboring St. Tammany Parish, which accounts for the most students. The public university has more 15000 students enrolled. "There is no immediate threat at this time".

School officials confirmed that there has not been an incident like this in the past ten years, but they could also not recall ever having a shooting on campus in the school's history.
