(CBS/AP) Two international students were found shot to death inside an apartment at a university in the U.S. state of Louisiana, and authorities said Friday the men were likely slain during a home invasion.
The victims, Chandrasekhar Reddy Komma and Kiran Kumar Allam, both international Ph.D. students at Louisiana State University, were found inside an apartment at the Edward Gay complex, police said. They were discovered after a call to campus police Thursday night seeking medical attention.
Authorities did not release their nationalities or other details.
No suspects had been identified.
An emergency text message was sent to students registered for an emergency alert system, but not all students received it, the university said in a news release. The problem was being investigated.
Officials also sent out an e-mail, voice mail message and posted a message to the LSU Web site. Many campuses implemented such emergency alert measures following the mass shooting of 32 people at Virginia Tech earlier this year by a gunman who killed himself.
LSU's police department and Baton Rouge Police are both working the case - they are urging students to use caution when moving about the campus, reports CBS News affiliate WWL-TV.
They also said at no time was any part of the campus under lockdown.
Well that story is a bit light on details
Well, looking at their names, they sound Middle Eastern. Perhaps there is some logic or reason in not releasing their nationalities.
International students, must have been from new Zealand from their names.
From their names, they sound Indian. I’m so sad for their families.
It’s from seeBS what more did you expect from them?
They could be Sri Lankan
We’ve produced a generation of criminals, and let some more cross the border, so we shouldn’t be surprised at the consequences.
Uh, no. Those names are Hindi.
If they lighten it up a bit more it will be ready for USA Today.
So, we will just have to wait and see -- although there are lots of native criminals in Louisiana, why prey without regard to "race, creed, or color"
The new favorite to blame in Baton Rouge, is of course, New Orleans transplants, or “Katrina victims”.
Thanks, hope it was an isolated incident and not another Va Tech.
There is no shortage of criminals prowling South Baton Rouge looking to prey on LSU students.
They’re obviously...... Tigers!
Do you doubt that transplanted New Orleanians continue to commit crimes at rates similar to what they did in New Orleans?
Also nearly half of the population of Fiji is of Indian descent.
No, they're Indians. Probably chosen because the likelihood of them owning weapons and being able to defend themselves was quite low.
Looks like India to me.
