Two people have been injured by gunshots fired early Friday morning at Southeastern Louisiana University.

The school shared on social media that campus police confirmed an "incident occurred on the North Campus involving several individuals". The two people who were injured were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Those who received alerts from SELU were warned by text Friday at 4:01 a.m. of reported shots fired on campus.

An investigation is underway into the matter, the police said.

Few details have been released about the shooting, but the university said Friday night the two victims were student-athletes.

She said the shooting didn't force any closures or cancellations on Friday, a day when the school doesn't have a full schedule of classes.

The incident at the university in Hammond, Louisiana, came amid a national debate over gun control sparked by the killing of 17 students and adults at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14.

A spokesperson for the university said the shooting happened overnight near the assembly hall where basketball games and other sporting events are held, The Associated Press reported.

Cowser says no suspects are in custody but that police have determined there was no "present threat" on campus. UPD is following up on all leads, and the incident remains under investigation.

Authorities said there is no current threat to students and staff.
