One person has been killed and two others wounded by gunfire on the campus of Tennessee State University in  Nashville, police have said.

The shootings, which occurred just before 11 pm local time on Thursday, appeared to have stemmed from a dispute over a dice game in a courtyard, the Metropolitan Nashville police department said.

Police did not say whether those involved were students. It is unclear whether any arrests have been made.

Three people were taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, said Tanya Stone, operations supervisor for the Metro Nashville emergency communication centre.

Last week, three people were shot and wounded during a large house party near the Tennessee State University campus.

The incidents follow a string of gun violence at or near several US schools in October, including fatal shootings on the campus of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff and near Texas Southern University in Houston.
