Capturing close to Mississippi college briefly causes campus lockdown


(Information) – Officers at Jackson State College in Mississippi locked down the campus for roughly 30 minutes on Wednesday after a close-by taking pictures wounded one particular person within the leg, a college spokesman mentioned.

“The shutdown has been lifted,” spokesman L.A. Warren mentioned.

The injured particular person was taken to a hospital and police have been trying to find a suspect who fled in a black automobile, Warren mentioned.

“The campus group is now not below risk of an energetic shooter,” the varsity, a traditionally black college, posted on Twitter.

The taking pictures passed off on a block on the fringe of the campus, the Jackson Police Division mentioned.
