GRAMBLING, La. — Three Grambling State University students were shot Monday night during a fight outside one of the campus dormitories but none has life-threatening injuries, a school spokesman said.

Bystander Tracy Lamar Greene Jr., 19, of Marrero, La., was rushed to Ruston General Hospital with a gunshot to his lower leg, said a news release from campus spokesman Will Sutton. Brandon Cooper, 21, showed up at the hospital with shots in his right forearm and his left thigh. A third student, Jarion Walker, 20, of Westwego, La., also was shot in the leg, Sutton said.

All three are from the New Orleans area, he said.

A resident assistant noticed a crowd growing outside of Douglass Hall at about 7:15 p.m. and immediately contacted campus police, reporting a shooting.

Campus police are investigating and said the situation is under control and that the community at large should not be concerned.

"We're investigating additional injuries, talking with witnesses and others who might be able to help us," Sgt. Ruby Jones said late Monday night.

Police released no information on arrests.

Grambling State is located in northeastern Louisiana. Its website says it has an enrollment of about 5,300 students and is a member of the University of Louisiana System.
