MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  One person is in critical condition at Vanderbilt Medical Center after a shooting near Tennessee State overnight.

WSMV-TV says gunmen fired into a large crowd attending a party near the campus just after midnight Wednesday morning.

Three people were transported to Vanderbilt with gunshot wounds. Two were treated for minor injuries. One was reportedly shot in the head and is in critical condition.

The victims are each from different universities, including Nashville State, Tennessee State and Middle Tennessee State.

Police say three men showed up and asked to join the party but were turned away and then opened fire.

Tennessee State is celebrating its Homecoming this week but it’s unclear if the party was related to homecoming activities.
