One person is dead and two others injured in a shooting late Thursday on the campus of Tennessee State University in Nashville, according to police.

The shooting happened at around 11 p.m. local time after an apparent dispute over a dice game on the campus of Tennessee State University. The injured were admitted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Tanya Stone of the Metro Nashville Police Department told NBC news.

The police has increased security at TSU by blocking its entrance and restricting the entry of non-students. Stone did not provide any information on the condition of the wounded. It is still not clear if they were students or outsiders. No information is available yet on whether the shooter is in custody or not.

The campus shooting incident comes just weeks after a gunman named Chris Mercer killed nine people at a college campus in Roseburg, Oregon. According to The Guardian, United States has a history of mass shootings and the Oregon college shooting is the 994th mass gun attack in U.S. in three years.

President Barack Obama expressed his grief at the Oregon shooting by calling it a “routine.” “We’ve become numb to this … We talked about this after Columbine and Blacksburg; after Tucson, after Newtown; after Aurora, after Charleston,” he said at that time.
