One person was killed and two more injured in a shooting Thursday before midnight, according to Metro Nashville police. The incident happened in a courtyard at Tennessee State University. According to CNN, the shooting resulted because of an argument regarding a game of dice.

Sharpe said just before midnight, those involved in the shooting were attending a student gathering. Two individuals not enrolled at Tennessee State may have been on the scene at the time of the altercation, she said. Two men opened fire, killing one.
