Bowling Green Police say an officer happened to be driving by the Lava Lounge, a bar located near campus, when he heard gun shots at around 12:30 Sunday morning.
"There were so many people and of course, everyone was running," says Ronnie Ward, the PIO for the Bowling Green Police Department.
When police arrived, 21-year-old Tevin Holliman and 20-year-old Ricardo Singh were found with gunshot wounds.
Holliman is a defensive lineman while Singh is a defensive back for WKU's football team.
Both were taken to the hospital, but University Officials say their injuries are not life threatening.
Some students at the University are shaken up by the shooting and say, it makes them feel unsafe.
"It's pretty nuts, like when you hear about someone getting shot, you know, you're kind of afraid, you don't want to get shot yourself" says Michael Hall, a student at WKU.
"I just heard about it this morning when I got the message that WKU sent out, I didn't know them personally but it's definitely sad that we had students get hurt last night," says Duall Schutte, a student at WKU.
But another student says he's not surprised it happened at the lounge.
"I think I've heard about stuff happening over there for a while now so I don't really mess with it and I'm not really that surprised because I think that's the second shooting to happen there this year," says Trey Huddleston, a student at WKU.
Police are still trying to figure out what lead up to the shooting.
"We're not sure if there was a disturbance going on in the parking lot, that if it was a fight that ended up turning into something else, we just really don't know that exactly right now," says Ward.
Police say no arrests have been made.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Bowling Green Police at 270-393-4000
