NASHVILLE, Tennessee — A shooting that left one person dead at Tennessee State University started after an apparent dispute over a dice game, Nashville police said.

Two others were injured in the shooting at an outdoor courtyard at the campus in Nashville. They were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, said Kelli Sharpe, a university spokeswoman.

The wounded are students, but their names have not been released pending their families’ notification, she said.

The incident occurred during a student gathering in which two men not enrolled at the university may have been gambling, according to Sharpe.

Both men exchanged gunfire, and one was killed, she said.
