BATON ROUGE - Police say a gunman opened fire early Sunday morning in Tigerland after the LSU football game against ULM.

Witnesses tell News 2 that there were football players in the area at the time, but police say they weren't involved with the shooting or injured.

Officials say two or three shots were heard and two people were taken to the hospital. The victims were a 20-year-old male and a 23-year-old male. Preliminary reports say one was shot in the leg and the other in the abdomen.

It happened on the 4400 block of Alvin Dark, which is right behind the popular college bar Reggie's.

Police say none of the victims suffered life threatening injuries.

No suspects have been named yet and the investigation is ongoing.

Residents who live in the neighborhood are tired of the violence in TigerLand.

They say a lot of it's just people being irresponsible. 

"It's very wild. It gets crazy over here. I almost ran over someone coming down {the street}...on the way home. I was like this close from hitting them because I didn't see them. They just staggered out in the middle of the street. They were drunk," said Shameka Bradley.
