The Georgia Bureau of Investigation also arrived at the scene to assist in collecting evidence.

Kennesaw State University is actively offering assistance and valuable resources to individuals impacted by the shooting incident.

An armed intruder has prompted a “KSU Alert” for the second time this year.

In January, students and staff had to take shelter on campus for several hours due to reports of an individual with a gun. According to the police, three suspects entered the university’s premises after a carjacking incident in DeKalb County. At least one of the suspects was armed, and the stolen vehicle was sighted in Cobb County.
