CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Police say five people have been injured in a shooting near a college campus in northern Tennessee.

Clarksville Police spokeswoman Natalie Hall says officers responded just before 9 p.m. Monday to a report of shots fired. She says although the shooting happened about two blocks from Austin Peay State University, police have no reason to believe it had anything to do with the school.

Hall says four people had “serious injuries.” Two were airlifted to a Nashville hospital and two were taken to a Clarksville hospital. Police had no further information about the fifth victim.

Police haven’t identified a suspect or suspects.

The Clarksville Leaf-Chronicle reports APSU issued an alert saying there did not appear to be a danger to the university but urging students to “take precautions” to ensure their safety.
