Suspect Sought in Shooting Death of Savannah State Univ. Student
A manhunt is underway for the suspect who fatally shot a Savannah State University student overnight.
Savannah State University junior Christopher Starks died from his injuries at a local hospital.
He was the only one hurt and passed away at the hospital in Savannah early Friday morning. He had just turned 22-years-old ten days ago. We've learned Starks was a standout athlete at Miller Grove High School in Lithonia.
The Georgia university was temporarily placed on lockdown. Classes were delayed until 10 a.m. as police sought Starks’ killer.
“The safety of those who live, study, work and visit Savannah State University remains a top priority - no exceptions,” the school said in a statement. “Savannah State University has zero tolerance for violence of any kind. If students are aware of the presence of weapons, please think and act responsibly to disclose such information to a member of the faculty, staff or administration, or other figure of authority.”
The school will hold a prayer vigil for Starks today.
