Gunshots were fired at Southeastern Louisiana University leaving two people injured on Friday morning, Feb 23. It's unclear if the injuries are gun-related, but the school reported they are "non-life threatening."
The university's alert, posted on Facebook and Twitter, also revealed that the incident happened on the North Campus and it involved "several individuals." But as of 8:45 a.m., there was "no present threat to the campus community." However, the University Police Department is still investigating what happened in the wee hours of the morning.
WGNO reports that students first received an alert about the incident around 4:02 a.m. when the school shared that the UPD was "investigating a report of gunshots near the University Center." However, it also stated there was "no immediate threat" at that time either.
There are no classes held on Fridays on the university's Hammond campus, but there are students who live in the dorm rooms onsite.
This news comes nine days after a gunman opened fire at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida and killed 17 people, sparking national outrage, rallies, and demands for common sense gun control laws. With another gun-related incident on a school campus, there's bound to be more outcry for safer laws.
