    Another school shooting: Savannah State University

    Does not look good !!!

    FOXNews.com - Savannah State University on Lockdown After Shooting That Wounded Student - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News


    Savannah State University is on lockdown after a student was wounded in a shooting at University Commons, an on-campus residence hall.

    Two people were taken to a local hospital after shots were fired between 11 a.m. and noon Friday, according to university spokeswoman Loretta Heyward.

    Campus officials don't know whether the shooter has been apprehended or how many students were involved, she said.

    There were unconfirmed reports that the injured student was shot outside a classroom, according to MyFOXAtlanta.

    The campus was locked down immediately following the shooting. Cars were allowed to leave the school around 2 p.m. but weren't allowed to travel back onto the campus.

    "We have locked our doors and are keeping our students inside," said Tara Cox, a marine biologist at the Georgia school.

    Campus and local police, including a S.W.A.T team, are at the university, along with investigators from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

    Savannah State University, a historically black college, was founded in 1890 and has a student population of about 3,200.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Guess the BG didn't get the memo.

    Apparently he hadn't signed up for the school automated messaging system either
    The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.

    More shooting in a target rich environment where only the good guys cant have guns.

    When will we learn?

    "The campus was locked down immediately following the shooting. Cars were allowed to leave the school around 2 p.m. but weren't allowed to travel back onto the campus."

    Doesn't this give a free pass to the shooter to get the heck out of Dodge?

    Good Lord! Another? I hadn't heard yet...just got home from work. Anyone done statistics for election years and shootings? I mean it's a real tragedy...always is, but it still seems to me these things happen more when the tide is rolling against us to start with. Did I explain that correctly? It's just something I can't get over thinking about the correlations.
