The Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office has arrested a suspect for the fatal shooting that killed two people on the campus of Grambling University.
Deputies say Jaylin Wayne turned himself in Thursday evening. He’s charged with first degree murder.
23-year-old Earl Andrews, a senior at Grambling, and his friend, 23-year-old Monquairious Caldwell, both of Farmerville, LA, were shot and killed early Wednesday morning.
Deputies say the shooting was initiated by a disagreement between Wayne and Andrews, that led to a fight. At some point during the fight, Wayne pulled a gun and shot both Andrews and Caldwell. Deputies say Caldwell was shot while trying to help Andrews.
Wayne is being held at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
Wayne is a freshman student at GSU from St. Louis, MO.
Lincoln Parish Sheriff Mike Stone says extra patrols on Grambling’s campus will continue for the foreseeable future.
“We would like to thank Sheriff Mike Stone, GSU Police Chief Howard Gene Caviness, and all local law enforcement for their commitment to our safety and their around the clock effort in solving this case within the first 48 hours,” said Grambling State University President Rick Gallot. “Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the Andrews and the Caldwell families during this difficult time.”
