Female student shot and killed by 'armed intruder' at Kennesaw State University in Georgia

"All I heard was bop, bop, bop, seven or eight times."


On Saturday, a female student was shot and killed by an "armed intruder" on the campus of Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, Georgia.

According to 11 Alive, the university confirmed that the shooting took place on Campus Loop Road and the suspect has been detained by police. Campus police were reportedly working alongside the Georgia Bureau of Investigations.

At 4:07 PM, the KSU Emergency Management team sent an alert to students that said, "KSU Alert: Kennesaw Campus: Armed Intruder reported at Kennesaw State." It added, "Seek shelter in a secure location until further notice."

A little more than 30 minutes later, the university gave the all-clear and confirmed that while a person had been shot, the suspect was "no longer a threat to campus." It then advised students to "Avoid the South Campus Housing area due to police activity." 

The university has not identified the victim in this case, nor have police revealed the name of the suspect. 

One student, Robert Bowns, who was near the area when the gunshots rang out, told WSB-TV 2, "All I heard was bop, bop, bop, seven or eight times." He added, "Five minutes later, I get a report from the campus that there was an armed intruder on campus.”

"This was really early and still during the time that classes could have been going on,” Bowns noted. “The terrible thing is, anybody could have been shot there because it’s a bus stop. It’s where we go to sit. it’s where we wait for a bus to pick us up." 

Another student, Alyssa Sanders told 11Alive she is considering moving from the area because of rising violence in Cobb County, Georgia, which is about 25 miles north of Atlanta. 

"I was looking for a fresh start because I'm from Chicago," Sanders said.

"Coming down here was like a getaway from the violence. So, I guess, violence coming back. It's like, should I move from Georgia?" she added. "Starting off 2020, here, you can tell the violence has definitely increased in Kennesaw."
