Officials at Mississippi State University are expected to release more information Sunday about a 21-year-old student who was fatally shot in a campus dorm room.
The shooting took place late Saturday night in a room at Evans Hall, a dorm for male students in the northwest side of campus, said Bill Kibler, vice president for student affairs at the Starkville school.
The victim, whose name was not released, was shot more than once. He was taken to a hospital, where he died, Kibler said.
Three men were seen fleeing the area in a blue sedan, he said. The suspects did not appear to be university students, he said.
The shooting prompted the school to send out a campus-wide alert through a series of text messages.FULL STORY
