An argument in a bar near Indiana State University led to a shooting in a campus parking lot, leaving one person dead and two people wounded.

William Mallory, 21, opened fire on three men with a handgun Friday around 3 a.m. in an ISU parking lot across the street from Ballyhoo Tavern in Terre Haute, Ind. Police say an argument happened inside the bar about an hour before the shooting. Mallory initially fled the scene in a car driven by someone else, but was later apprehended and taken to a Vigo County Jail facing a murder charge.

Dustin Kelly, 24, was killed in the shooting, the Tribune Star reports. Kelly was a former ISU student. He died from gunshot wounds to the chest, according to Vigo County Coroner Dr. Roland Kohr.

Police say Dante Pettus and Terrance Trotter were wounded in the shooting. Terre Haute assistant police chief Shawn Keen said there was no indication Kelly, Pettus or Trotter possessed any weapons.

According to ISU Police Chief Bill Mercier, Mallory was suspended from ISU for violating the campus ban on firearms.

It was the first homicide on campus in 12 years.
