Two students were killed after firing at Grambling University campus. 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.

A shooting at Grambling State University in the southeastern USA state of Louisiana has resulted in two people being killed, local media reported on Wednesday. Two men, both 23-year-olds from Farmerville, Louisiana, were identified as Earl Andrews and Monquiarious Caldwell.

"An unknown suspect shot the two of them and fled", said Will Sutton, the university's director of communications. No description of the suspect has been issued by the investigators yet.

Williams told CBS that a few witnesses have come forward to help with the investigation and police are still trying to piece together what happened.

Andrews was a senior at the historically black university.

"Our prayers are with the victims and their families", Sutton said. The campus was not placed on lockdown, and classes continued as normal for Grambling's roughly 5,000 students. Violence has no place on our campus.

According to GSU's website, it "combines the academic strengths of a major university with the benefits of a small college, a combination that enables our students to grow and learn in a serene and positive environment". "We will fully cooperate with the police investigation".
