MSU police investigate shooting

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Authorities at Mississippi State

University are investigating an alleged kidnapping attempt and a

Saturday morning campus shooting.

Campus police say there were no injuries in the shooting, but an

18-year-old female student did report being approached by a male

wearing black clothing with a bandanna covering his face.

MSU Police Chief Georgia Lindley says a male allegedly showed

the unidentified female a gun and asked her to leave with him. The

student ran toward a friend and both reported hearing a shot fired

as they left the area.

Police received a report at about 4 a.m. that a shot had been

fired in a parking area behind Hathorn Hall, a residence hall on

the southern part of campus.
