NASHVILLE, TN -- Police say three students have been wounded by gunfire, including one shot in the head, at an off-campus party near Tennessee State University in Nashville.

Metro Nashville Police Lt. Danny Haley told The Tennessean ( http://tnne.ws/1X2DhQl ) that officers went to a home across the street from the campus after receiving 911 calls of shots fired. Haley says witnesses told officers the shooting began soon after three armed males arrived at the home and were turned away from the party.

Haley says the victims were all students from Tennessee universities between 19 and 20 years old. He says the student shot in the head was in critical condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center while the others had non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say they are seeking three black males.
