Authorities: 1 dead, 3 injured during shooting at Tennessee State in Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Authorities in Tennessee say a man shot to death was not a student at Tennessee State University, where an apparent dispute over a dice game in an outdoor courtyard led to gunfire.

Metropolitan Nashville Police spokesman Don Aaron says the shooting happened Thursday around 10:50 p.m. amid an argument over a dice game. Aaron told reporters the 19-year-old man who was killed was part of the argument.

Aaron says three female students, who were just passing by, were wounded in the shooting. Two were hospitalized and one of them has since been released. The third student had only superficial injuries.
