BATON ROUGE - Southern University said administrators were able to identify some of the people in a viral video that appeared to show a large brawl and gunfire on campus.

The video, first reported by WBRZ and WBRZ.com Wednesday, shows a group of people fighting and then someone fire what appears to be a gun. Some people have said it was an April Fools prank but the university said it was investigating the antics and taking the video seriously.

"You hurt our alumni and you hurt Southern University's image," Ed Pratt, the director of media relations at SU, said.

Pratt's office said Thursday, the identities of some people in the video were known but were still looking for the person who appeared to be firing some sort of weapon.

Students in the video could face fines, expulsion or criminal charges.
