LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Western Kentucky University student home for summer break has been struck at random by gunfire that broke out after a party near the University of Louisville campus.

News outlets report 19-year-old Eriaun Warrick was upgraded to serious condition from critical condition early Monday.

Warrick was shot in the mouth early Sunday, with the bullet becoming lodged in her upper back.

Warrick’s friend Sasha Snardon tells the Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1XaBWKG ) that she was leaving the party with Warrick when they came across a large group of people outside, some of whom then began fighting.

Warrick’s friends say they heard at least 20 to 30 shots fired.

Louisville police have not released any information about what may have prompted the shooting. As of Monday, no arrests had been made.
