BATON ROUGE - Tears, hugs and words of encourage were all part a memorial service on the Southern University campus for the victim of a shooting this past weekend.

Students gathered to remember Ferdinand Dorsey, Jr. Dorsey, a 26-year old student from New Orleans, was gunned down Monday night.

Police say a campus argument spilled over to the Palisades Apartment complex.

Those gathering in the student union area say Baton Rouge is becoming more like New Orleans due to recent violence. They say more has to be done to teach young people to avoid problems.
