Tennessee State University says the person killed in a shooting on campus wasn't a student at the school.

In an email, university spokeswoman Kelli Sharpe says it's believed the Thursday night shooting happened at a gathering where two males, who weren't enrolled at the school, may have been gambling.

According to the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department's verified Twitter account, the shooting was apparently prompted by a dispute over a dice game in an outdoor courtyard.

In addition to the death, two others were wounded in the shooting.

Authorities say one person was killed and two others hospitalized in a shooting at Tennessee State University in Nashville.

According to the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department's verified Twitter account, the fatal shooting Thursday night was apparently prompted by a dispute over a dice game in an outdoor courtyard.
