Police in Nashville have released video footage showing the Tennessee State University campus shooting that left one person dead and three wounded late Thursday. Authorities were looking to identify at least two gunmen, according to a tweet posted by the Metro Nashville Police Department Friday night.
More than a day after the shooting, which apparently took place over a dice game, police have offered a reward of $6,000 for any information leading to help in identifying and arresting the shooters.
“At least 2 gunmen involved in TSU shooting. Know them? 615-742-7463--$6,000 reward offered,” the tweet read. Two videos of the same footage posted by police -- one in slow motion and the other in normal speed -- show two people firing what appear to be handguns.
Police were still looking for the suspect as of Saturday morning, according to the Tennessean newspaper. The shooting occurred in a courtyard near the Floyd-Payne Campus Center after a dice game turned into a fight.
The fight then escalated to gunfire at about 10:50 p.m. local time, resulting in the death of Cameron Selmon, a 19-year-old from Memphis, who was not a student at the university. Three female students passing by the scene were wounded by the hail of gunfire, but are recovering.
One of the freshman females refused treatment at the scene, while two others were transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center before being released Friday.
Police said after the shooting they believed it to be an isolated incident, according to WSMV-TV in Nashville. The TSU incident is the latest in a long string of on-campus shooting incidents across the U.S. in the past year.
In mid-October, police took into custody 18-year-old Northern Arizona University student Steven Jones after he was identified as the shooter who killed at least one person on the school’s Flagstaff campus. Also this month, a shooting at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, left 10 people dead, including the shooter, Christopher Harper-Mercer. That rampage also left nine others injured.
