Grambling State University’s homecoming event was brutally interrupted around 1 a.m. on Sunday, when an unknown person opened fire, killing one person and wounding seven more.
One of the persons injured was an enrolled student.
This Is the Second Shooting on Campus in Less Than a Week
Last Wednesday, a gunfight ensued between two people who are not students. One person was killed, and three others were injured. The authorities stated that they don’t believe it is related to Sunday’s shooting.
Even though this school was never on the list of the safest colleges in America, crimes like these are unheard of.
Curfew Enacted Until Further Notice
Grambling State University President Rick Gallot stated that the outsiders endanger the students’ lives and that the university’s priority is keeping the students safe. Therefore, the school canceled Monday and Tuesday classes and enacted a curfew from 9:30 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. until further notice.
The Grambling State University will also work closely with Louisiana State Police to take a more preemptive approach to gun violence.
Detectives Are Looking for a Suspect in Wednesday’s Shooting
Louisiana State Police doesn’t have any suspects yet for Sunday’s shooting, but it is looking for a person named Jatavious Carroll concerning Wednesday’s deadly gunfire incident.
Crimes like these also raise the question of equipping institutions with tactical medical kits instead of standard first aid kits. They are better suited for providing first aid to gunshot victims.
