BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- A student from Western Kentucky University died while visiting family for Thanksgiving break.

Friends say Cheryl Williamson finished work at Target in Bowling Green then headed to Louisville for a party at the Gillespie Building. After the party, police say she got into a fight with two men and was shot in the chest. Her friends don't know what started the fight. She was rushed her to the hospital, but she died in surgery. Her friends say going back to campus without her will be tough.

"We kind of basically did everything together, so it's going to be weird, but I'm being as strong as I can, and I know that she would want me to stay in school and go back," said Cheryl's friend Terrence Williams.

Police are still searching for the gunmen.
