The shooting reportedly happened after an argument over cafeteria food took place.

The school sent out a campus alert on its social media pages immediately after the shooting took place.

Dr. Daniel Wims, Alabama A&M president, addressed the incident.

“I understand the concerns this incident has raised. Please know that we remain committed to providing a safe and secure environment for our campus community. We will continue to cooperate with law enforcement agencies and take necessary actions to prevent such incidents in the future.”

The shooting allegedly began as a fight between two students outside of the Knight Center and resulted in three people being injured.
