The Latest: Grambling increasing security after shooting

GRAMBLING, La. (AP) — Grambling State University's president says the Louisiana college will have "increased police and security" on campus this week after a shooting that killed a student and his friend.

But the school's president, Richard Gallot Jr., said in a statement Wednesday that Grambling State will proceed with a normal academic schedule and isn't canceling homecoming events this week.

Authorities were searching Wednesday for a suspect in the killings of Grambling State junior Earl Andrews and Monquiarious Caldwell, both 23 and from Farmerville, Louisiana.

Gallot said the shooting was an "isolated incident." Lincoln Parish Sheriff Mike Stone said the suspect and victims knew each other "to some extent."

A spokesman for the sheriff's office said the two men were shot after an altercation started inside a dorm room and spilled out into a courtyard.

A student-led prayer vigil was planned for Wednesday evening.
