A manhunt was under way Wednesday for a suspect in the shooting deaths of two men on a university campus in northern Louisiana.

The other victim, Monquiarius Caldwell, from Farmerville was not a student at the University, Sutton said.

Sutton says GSU's Police Chief received a phone call from a student to his cell phone and dispatched officers. Andrews was a senior at the university.

"There are no indicators that this incident bears any resemblance to any of the random acts of violence or domestic terrorism that have been experience around our country in recent weeks", Stone said in a statement. It wasn't immediately known why Caldwell was on campus or his connection to Andrews. The spokesman for Lincoln Parish Sheriff's Office, Stephen Williams, said, "We're interviewing witnesses".

According to Sutton, some sort of an altercation took place between an unknown suspect and the two victims.

Heard said that Andrews usually kept a low profile, coming home right after he was done with classes, but had stayed on campus in order to celebrate homecoming week with his friends.

The shooting happened around midnight outside of a campus dorm. Sutton told news outlets then that a student let another person into a dorm and there was an altercation that ended with a student being shot in the left arm on September 21.
