Savannah State student killed in campus shooting

Posted By on Fri, Aug 28, 2015 at 10:40 AM

Christopher Starks, a junior at Savannah State University originally from metro Atlanta, succumbed to his injuries after being shot Thursday night.

Savannah State police say the shooting happened late Thursday night near the student union on the campus in East Savannah/Thunderbolt.

No description of the shooter has been made available at this time.

Shortly after the shooting the campus went on full lockdown. The school lifted the lockdown several hours later.

Because the university is a state institution, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) is handling the ongoing investigation with assistance from the SSU Police Department.

    The old agreement had a good run. It’s time to relegate it to memory. The incumbent politicians had a good run. It’s time to retire their jerseys. The next “enough” moment is here, and the first step—just the very first baby step!—is sweeping change at the ballot box.
