At Least 2 Gunmen Involved in Thursday Night's TSU Shooting
October 23, 2015
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Surveillance video from Tennessee State University cameras made available to the MNPD Friday night shows at least two persons fired shots in the outside courtyard of the Floyd-Payne Campus Center Thursday.
MNPD technical experts were able to access and analyze the surveillance video after physically removing cameras from the TSU campus Friday night and bringing them to police headquarters where the recorded data was removed.
One video clip, linked below in normal speed and slow motion, shows two gunmen firing at a third individual. Detectives are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the two shooters in the video clip. Anyone who knows their identities is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and qualify for a cash reward of $6,000 ($5,000 of which is being made available by the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms).
At this point in the investigation, it has not been determined whether Cameron Selmon, who was fatally wounded, was responsible for any gunfire.
Surveillance video shows that at least half a dozen individuals made cellphone still pictures or video recordings of a fight that immediately preceded the gunfire. Anyone who has those photos or recordings is asked to contact Detective Melody Saxon at 615-862-7805.
