Officials with Mississippi State University say a student was shot and killed at a residence hall, prompting a campus-wide alert.
University spokeswoman Maridith Geuder says police received a call about the shooting at Evans Hall around 10 p.m. Saturday. The victim was taken to a hospital where he subsequently died.
Three male suspects fled the building in a blue Crown Victoria, and the university sent several text message alerts to students. As of early Sunday, no arrests had been made and the campus remained under emergency conditions.
The four-story Evans Hall holds about 300 male students and is
located on the north side of campus.
