Two men were fatally shot on the campus of Grambling State University early Wednesday morning.

The suspect remained at large Thursday more than a day after the shooting, but Major Stephen Williams of the Lincoln Parish Sheriff's Office said investigators were "making good progress".

Authorities believe that an altercation in a dorm room on campus escalated into the shooting, which occurred in a courtyard outside.

Earl Andrews, a 23-year-old senior, and his friend Monquiarious Caldwell, also 23, were both pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Washington Post.

During Howard University's homecoming weekend recently, students feared for their safety after an active shooter report.

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. The suspect fled the scene, spurring a manhunt that prompted a call for students to stay indoors.

"This is a disgusting tragedy".

"Our prayers go out to the victims and their families", media relations director Sutton said in an on-camera statement. There is no place for violence on the GSU campus. We always encourage our students to be safe, to be aware, watch who they hang out with, and watch who's around at all times. The campus was not placed on lockdown, and classes continued as normal for Grambling's roughly 5,000 students.
