Two arrested in shooting at Southeastern Louisiana University
HAMMOND---Two arrests have been made in connection with last night's incident involving gunfire in a parking lot outside the University Center, located on North Campus of Southeastern Louisiana University, according to university officials.

"The Southeastern Family can rest assured that this was strictly an isolated incident," said UPD Director Harold Todd. "In fact, the incident appears to have stemmed from a dispute between individuals and was not in any way directed at the university."

The suspects were taken into custody by the University Police Department, and will be charged with attempted murder. The Hammond Police Department and Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office are assisting with the ongoing investigation.

The two individuals who received treatment at a nearby hospital for non-life threatening gunshot wounds have been confirmed as Southeastern student-athletes.

Information will continue to be shared with the campus community as the investigation continues.
