Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s spokesman Stephen Williams says detectives were at the scene of the double homicide, assisting campus police, after getting 911 calls starting at 12:04 a.m. Wednesday.

“It was an altercation that started inside one of the dorm rooms and spilled out into the courtyard,” Williams said. “We’re interviewing witnesses.”

Grambling State University Media Relations Director Will Sutton told news outlets that one of the victims was a Grambling senior, Earl Andrews, and the other was Monquiarius Caldwell, both 23 and from Farmerville, Louisiana.

The shooter remains at large. Authorities at the historically black university didn’t immediately identify a possible motive for the shooting, which was reported to campus police shortly after midnight Tuesday.
