Two students were found shot to death inside an apartment at Louisiana State University, and authorities said Friday the men were likely slain during a home invasion.

The victims, Chandrasekhar Komma and Kiran Allam, both international Ph.D. students at LSU, were found inside an apartment at the Edward Gay complex. They were discovered after a call to campus police around 10:30 p.m. Thursday night seeking medical attention.

No suspects had been identified.

Campus officials are urging students to be cautious travelling to and from the campus Friday. An emergency text message was sent to students registered for an emergency alert system, and officials also sent out an e-mail, voice mail message and posted a message to the LSU Web site.
