2 NC university students shot, killed at party


GREENSBORO, N.C. (WNCN) – Two North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University students were shot to death Sunday morning at a large party, Greensboro police and university officials confirmed.


The two students were shot following an altercation at a large party that was being held at 911 Circle Drive, police said. The fight and shooting occurred just after 2 a.m. The incident occurred just a few blocks from campus.

According to police, an unknown person took out a gun and began firing following the altercation. Two students were hit by the gunfire.

A man who asked not to be identified told CBS North Carolina that he heard “gunshots being fired” and that “people were screaming outside the house, telling me that a girl and guy got shot.”

The man said he lives in the apartment where the party took place and knew the victims.

The victims have been identified as Alisia Dieudonne, 19, and Ahmad Campbell, 21. They were both shot and transported to the hospital where they were pronounced dead.

According to university officials, Dieudonne was a sophomore computer science major from Homewood Illinois. Campbell was a junior agriculture and environmental systems major from Kitrell.

The man who did not want to be identified said both Dieudonne and Campbell were “real friendly” and called Dieudonne “real good people.” He said that “once you get to know her, she’s your best friend.”

Students at the university woke up Sunday morning to an alert from the school on social media.

Chance Wade, a sophomore at N.C. A&T, called the incident “devastating.”

“I really feel like it was a devastating situation, two lives lost and it could have been me. I could have been in that house party,” he said.

Greensboro police said the investigation is ongoing and it’s unclear if the victims knew the suspect or what happened to start the altercation that led to the shooting.

“We have a number of witnesses and we have nothing to indicate that they were part of the dispute,” Greensboro Police Department Capt. Nathaniel Davis said of the two victims.

The school’s Office of Counseling Services will be open from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
