University spokeswoman Kelli Sharpe told the Associated Press that the man who died was not a student at the school. The other two wounded victims were students and were brought to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, Sharpe said. No other injuries were reported and students were escorted safely back to their residence halls.
WZTV reported the victims were transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. According to The Tennessean, police were taping off the entrance to the school and telling everyone who doesn’t attend the school to leave.
The incident comes just over a week after three people were wounded by gunfire at an off-campus party across the street from the college.
