The president and CEO of a northeastern Texas university says four of its students were treated and released from area hospitals following an overnight shooting in which two people were killed and 12 others were injured when a gunman opened fire at an off-campus college party.
Texas A&M University-Commerce President Mark Rudin posted a statement on the university's Facebook page Sunday that says the university is reaching out to the four injured students.
Rudin says there is "a tremendous amount of misinformation" about the shooting that occurred at a party venue attended by about 750 people outside Greenville, some 15 miles (24 kilometers) southwest of Commerce.
Rudin says counseling services are available to all our students at the university's counseling center.
