STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- A student was shot to death at a
Mississippi State University residence hall late Saturday night,
prompting campus-wide alerts as authorities searched for suspects who fled the scene.

University spokeswoman Maridith Geuder said police received a
call about the shooting at Evans Hall around 10 p.m. Saturday. The victim was taken to a hospital where he subsequently died.

Three male suspects fled the building in a blue Crown Victoria.
As of early Sunday, no arrests had been made and the campus
remained under emergency conditions.

Shortly after the shooting, the university began sending a
series of text message alerts to students. Geuder said a team of
university officials and police was meeting early Sunday.
The four-story Evans Hall holds about 300 male students and is
located on the north side of campus.
