Three men have been arrested in the shooting on Southeastern Louisiana University's campus Friday, said Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's spokeswoman Dawn Panepinto.
Jabbar Singleton, 19, Hebert Joseph Jr., 18, and Jacoby Senegal, 19, were booked into the Tanigpahoa Parish Jail since the incident Friday, which injured two.
Two people were arrested Friday evening after two people were shot and wounded in an incident earlier in the day at Southeastern Louisiana Uni…
Joseph Jr., of Napoleonville, and Senegal, of Abbeville, were both booked on carrying a firearm on school property and two counts each of attempted second-degree murder. Singleton, of New Orleans, was booked on illegal discharge of a firearm and carrying a firearm while on school property.
Singleton was a member of the Southeastern men's basketball team, but has been suspended indefinitely for disciplinary reasons, according to athletic director Jay Artigues.
Singleton and Jacoby were students at the university, according to Erin Cowser, a spokeswoman for Southeastern Louisiana University. She said on Tuesday she could not confirm that Joseph was a student.
Senegal and Joseph were arrested Friday following the shooting and Singleton was arrested Sunday, Panepinto said.
Cowser said Monday that the two people injured have received medical treatment and are expected to recover.
"We have every reason to believe that the event this past Friday was an isolated incident that grew out of a dispute between individuals which began at an off-campus location," she said. "It was in no way an act of aggression toward the university community in general."
