Campus Shooting the Result of a Dice Game

Campus Shooting the Result of a Dice Game

One person was shot and killed at Tennessee State University Thursday night

Police are still looking for the gunman who shot and killed one person at Tennessee State University. Police spokesman Don Aaron said a group of individuals were playing a dice game on the campus quad when a fight broke out.

At that point, someone pulled out a gun and fired. A 19-year-old, who was not a student, died. Three 18-year-old students walking by were struck by the gunfire.

"We do not believe this was an incidence of a random shooter on campus," Aaron said. "This was an isolated incident resulting from a dispute over a dice game. The Nashville Police Department believes this campus is safe."

The shooting occurred one day after a meeting between police, Tennessee State University officials and community leaders about safety on campus.
