A college junior died after being shot Thursday night in Savannah State University’s student union building.
Christopher Starks, a junior from the Atlanta area, died at a local hospital, the college said in a statement.
According to two women who were in the union, there was a fight that ended in one person being shot in the collarbone area, NBC affiliate WSAV reported. The station said that other students applied pressure to the wound before first responders arrived.
The shooting prompted a lockdown at the Georgia campus. It wasn't immediately clear whether a suspect was in custody. No further details were immediately available.

The number of migrants found dead in a truck abandoned on the side of a highway in Austria has reached at least 70, the country's interior ministry said Friday, NBC News reported.
Police originally thought up to 50 refugees had died inside the vehicle, which had been parked up on the shoulder of the busy road, 10 miles from Austria's border with Slovakia and Hungary.
The war in Syria has contributed to record numbers of migrants attempting to cross into Europe from Africa and the Middle East this year, often taking perilous sea crossings and stowing away in trucks.
On Aug. 9, 86 refugees — including an eight-months pregnant woman and 16 children — were freed from the back of a locked, windowless truck on another highway in Austria.
