NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Tennessee State University officials say no one associated with the university was involved in a shooting that happened on campus Tuesday night.

Police found a 20-year-old man shot in the leg along the 3500 block of John A. Merritt Boulevard near Kean and Boyd Halls.

Police say the man's injuries are minor and he is expected to be OK.

Investigators say the shooting took place outside Kean Hall following an intramural basketball game, and no TSU students or employees were involved.

The gunman is described as a black man, approximately 5'8" to 5'10" and wearing a dark hoodie and saggy pants.

School officials say they believe it was an isolated incident, but they are taking measures to increase security on campus.

The school says they plan to strictly enforce the mandatory ID policy, increase patrols in strategic locations throughout campus and at certain access points, provide more security in select residence halls and implement control mechanisms in high-traffic buildings and areas at night.

TSU is working closely with Metro Police to investigate the shooting.
