Student Dies After Savannah State University Shooting.

A student died early Friday after being shot at a US university in the state of Georgia, in an altercation that triggered a temporary lockdown of the campus. Officials are investigating the death of a student killed in a shooting Thursday night at Savannah State University in Georgia, the university said in a statement.

Founded in 1890, the school has about 4,100 enrolled students, 145 members of the faculty and a 173-acre (70-hectare) campus, according to its website. Heyward said the administration knew few details about the episode, and she urged anyone with information to come forward. “While it may be natural to want to protect an associate,” she said in the statement, “the lack of disclosure may do more harm than good in the long run.” On Thursday, The Tiger’s Roar, a student newspaper at the university, reported that blood had been found on the floor of the student union building, near where the shooting took place.
