This is the third shooting on the TSU campus in the past two months, and the second at this apartment complex.
Earlier this week, one person was injured while on the "Tiger Walk." TSU Police are still looking for that suspect, identified is Darios Tramain Crayton Scott, 19.
And back on August 27, a man and woman were both injured when a man opened fire in the parking lot of the same apartment complex as today's shooting. Darrius Nichols, 20, is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in that case.
