The male who died was not enrolled at the school, a university spokeswoman said. Police have not said whether the other individuals involved were students or visiting the campus.

It was unclear if a suspect was in custody.

The three gunshot victims were transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, said Tanya Stone, operations supervisor for the Metro Nashville emergency communication center.

The two who survived had injuries not considered life-threatening, the Tennessean newspaper reported.

Last week, three people were shot and wounded during a large house party near the Tennessee State University campus.

The incidents come amid a string of gun violence at or near several U.S. schools in October, including deadly incidents on the campus of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff and adjacent to Texas Southern University in Houston.

These were samples of the mass shootings that happened last week. Over four weeks since Umpqua and gun violence has spiked.

Not to mention more events in which law enforcement used force when engaging in suspects. Some of these encounters were deadly.
