Police said Alisia Dieudonne, 19, and Amhad Campbell, 21, both students of NCA&T State University, were wounded when an unknown suspect shot them during an altercation.
They were taken to a local hospital where they were pronounced dead, police said.

A report from local Fox News outlet WGHP grants even greater detail:
“None of what happened had to happen,” said the N.C. A&T student who lives at the house where the party took place.
We had a party that happened on the other side of campus. It wasn’t even here. And then what happened was after that party had let out people came over to the house hearing that there was another party and it wasn’t,” he went on to say.
The student, who didn’t want to be identified, said that a large group of people would soon enter the house.
“It got real packed guys had gotten kind of heated. Two guys one of them was my friend and then another guy that I don’t know, they started arguing,” he explained.
The other guy that I didn’t know claimed that my friend had tried to hit him with a bottle and then two of his friends hit my friend,” he continued.
The student told the outlet shots rang out shortly after the exchange.
