Georgia student shot and killed on Kennesaw State University campus

A student was shot and killed over the weekend at Kennesaw State University in Georgia, the university confirmed.

The shooting occurred during an argument Saturday outside the Austin housing complex, KSU officials said, before the suspect fled the campus.

“Our thoughts and deepest condolences go out to the victim’s family and friends during this incredibly difficult time,” KSU President Kathy Schwaig said in a statement Sunday.

The university said police identified the suspect, who is not a KSU student. He was charged with murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

By Saturday afternoon, the school’s emergency management office had issued an advisory alert regarding an armed intruder at KSU, a public university located just outside of Atlanta.

A little over half an hour later, the office announcement that an individual was shot on campus, adding that students should avoid the South Campus housing area due to police activity.

On Sunday, KSU confirmed that the suspect had been arrested by local police and no longer posed a threat to the campus community. The university said its police department is currently working on the case with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

A spokesperson for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation confirmed it was assisting the university with the investigation.

This is the second time this year an armed intruder has been reported on campus.

Police were called to campus in January after a similar report of “armed suspects”, and the threat was averted without shooting or death.
