At about 11:40 a.m., the school tweeted that there was a threat on campus and that the suspected shooter was in a black Honda Accord. “The entire campus community should take shelter immediately,” the post read. About
a half an hour later, shortly after noon, they shared an update saying the lockdown had been lifted “and the campus community is no longer under threat of an active shooter.”

A University spokesman later said that the shooting actually occurred in a parking lot across the street from the campus and a man, not a student, was shot in the leg and hospitalized. However, the suspect has not yet been arrested and the Jackson Police Department is handling the investigation.

Jackson State is a historically black university in the city of Jackson and according to their website, it has nearly 9,000 students.
