One person was killed and seven others were injured Sunday at Grambling State University, Louisiana State Police said.

A student at Grambling State University was among those injured in the 1:30 a.m. (local) attack. One person is in critical condition in hospital.

The school tweeted that the student had “been treated for non-life-threatening injuries” and that the deceased had not been admitted to university.

This is the second shooting in less than a week – although the incidents are unrelated – at the historic Black College in the South American state.

Homecoming activities – an annual soccer game with parties – were canceled like Monday and Tuesday classes.

The statement added that an overnight curfew had been imposed.

The school tweeted early Sunday, “Gram Fame, now is the time to irrationally unite as we rally to comfort each other after this morning’s incident.”

A later tweet urged students to refrain from spreading false information about the investigation.

Louisiana State Police said in a statement posted on Facebook that “the LSP is requesting assistance in locating a suspect or suspects in the shooting.” “Any information, even the smallest detail, can be important in this investigation.”

Officers also released the name and photo of a suspect in the same campus shooting.

A 19-year-old man was killed and a 16-year-old was injured in the October 13 shooting, police said.
