Gunfire reportedly injured three on the campus of Tennessee State University late Thursday.

A shooting at Tennessee State University in Nashville injured three people, one of them critically, Thursday night, according to reports.

Shots rang out at the college’s campus around 11 p.m., The Tennessean reported. An emergency crew rushed three people to a nearby hospital with gunshot wounds, said Tanya Stone, operations supervisor for the Metro Nashville emergency communication center.

Police were investigating at the school early Friday. It wasn’t known whether the victims were students and there’s no evidence to indicate there was an active shooter, Stone said.

Officers at the school blocked off the entrance and told nonstudents to leave the campus, according to the Tennessean.

Officials at the school and its police department didn’t immediately respond to inquiries early Friday. The shooting happened hours after the school celebrated Founders’ Day on the anniversary of the day the university started 103 years ago.

    The 1856 British Guiana one-cent magenta is a tiny octagonal red inch-wide stamp. Philatelic experts say that when it is auctioned at Sotheby’s in New York on June 17, this singular postal artifact is expected to fetch something around $ 20 million, the largest price ever paid for a stamp. By weight and size, it may be the most valuable object in the world. The stamp is just one souvenir of the strange legacy of John E. du Pont, a man who had everything money could buy but threw it away in one moment of blind violence.
