The Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI) is investigating the fatal overnight shooting, the agency said in a tweet.
It was Homecoming weekend at FVSU when the tragic incident occurred blocks away from the university campus, which is still an “active scene,” according to GBI.
The individual who died was not an FVSU student, GBI confirmed, and the seven injured are in stable condition.
“There were student injuries, but at this time, none have been reported as life-threatening,” FVSU said. “As a precautionary measure, the campus was placed on lockdown until campus police determined there was no threat to the campus community.”
The lockdown was lifted, but an alumni breakfast and homecoming parade that were expected to take place Saturday morning were canceled as a result of the incident.
“Our thoughts are with the students and their families as they recover,” FVSU said,
