Another campus shooting is making headlines this morning, this one out of Savannah State University in Georgia. Police say a junior at the school identified as Christopher Starks died after being shot at the student union last night, reports WSB-TV. Nobody else was injured, and it's not clear what prompted the shooting. A school statement says he was shot "during an altercation." No arrests have been made. The school lifted a lockdown around midnight but was delaying the start of this morning's classes by a couple of hours, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. (More school shooting stories.)
