Casualty of a dice game. TSU college students gambled with their lives this week. See what went down after the jump.

A dice game gone wrong took the life of 1 man and left 3 additional women wounded this passed Thursday, on Tennessee State University campus. Witnesses said an argument that went south (no pun intended), led to a fistfight which even further escalated to “when suddenly shots were fired”, according to spokesman Don Aaron from the Metro Nashville Police. The incident took place late Thursday evening around 10:50 p.m.

The man who was killed was 19 years old and not enrolled at the university. It is unclear whether the gunman was enrolled at TSU or not, but according to WZTV, the police do not believe he was. The shooter’s whereabouts are unknown at this time as he fled the scene.

The 3 female students who were injured were not taking part in the dice game, but were passerby’s. One student was just grazed and didn’t require any medical attention, while the other 2 were struck and taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. One was released Friday morning, where as the other student was in stable condition but is expected to make a full recovery, Aaron said.

After the shooting, the campus was placed on lockdown and no further injuries were reported. As it is in today’s age, many students recorded the fight on their phones and police are encouraging anybody with further information to come forward. Police do have some footage, but no description on the suspect.

The incident happened just a week after were 3 additional people were also wounded by gunfire at an off-campus party, across the street from the college. Let’s hope this doesn’t turn into a fatal trend surrounding the historic college. The man who died’s identity will be revealed later in the week once normal scheduling has commenced.
