Georgia College Student Shot Dead at Gas Station Near Campus IN BROAD DAYLIGHT

A Georgia State University student was fatally shot Sunday afternoon in what police said was a “targeted incident” at a gas station near the downtown Atlanta campus.

The call came in at 4:30 p.m., Atlanta police said. The victim was rushed to a hospital in critical condition, but he died from his injuries, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The shooting took place at a Racetrac gas station right across the street from the school’s Piedmont Central Dining Hall, WXIA reported.

The school sent out a warning to students to stay clear of the area during the investigation, and on Monday morning, said that the victim, whose identity has not been released, had been a student.

“It is with regret that I deliver the news that, tragically, a Georgia State student was fatally wounded in the incident,” university President M. Brian Blake wrote in a statement sent to students. “As a leader, I am heartbroken to lose a member of our community and I hope you will keep the surviving family in your thoughts.”

Blake said university police were assisting Atlanta officers.

Investigators have not released more information on possible suspects or circumstances surrounding the shooting.
