“Our campus community has worked tirelessly to keep our students and others safe for the homecoming activities,” Grambling State President Rick Gallot said in a statement. “Yet, with all of our planning and coordination with our local, parish, regional, and state law enforcement partners, we still find ourselves grieving the loss of life and injuries just as too many communities in our country have experienced as well. Why would someone come to the campus of our Dear Ole Grambling and shoot innocent people?”
LSP led the investigation into another GSU shooting that happened on Thursday.
