HAMMOND, La. (AP/Meredith) — Two people were injured after gunshots were fired early Friday on a college campus in Louisiana, school officials said.

Southeastern Louisiana University spokeswoman Erin Cowser said the incident happened at 3 a.m. Friday near an assembly hall where basketball games and other sports events are held.

Cowser said the shooting apparently stemmed from a fight or altercation involving students and people who aren't enrolled in the school.

She said the incident hasn't forced any closures or cancellations on Friday, a day when the school doesn't have a full schedule of classes.

"The incident is over and done," she said.

It was unclear whether the two people injured were students. They were taken to a local hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

Cowser says no suspects are in custody. Police are investigating.

In a Friday morning tweet, the school said there was no current threat to campus and university police are investigating the incident.

ALERT: No present threat to campus community. University Police confirmed incident occurred on North Campus involving several individuals. Gunshots fired, 2 individuals suffered non-life threatening injuries. UPD following up on all leads, incident remains under investigation.

The school is located in Hammond, about 56 miles northwest of New Orleans.
