Fraternity Member Shot on Jackson State U Campus

My thoughts are with the family, fraternity brothers, and friends of the victim. Here are highlights from the August 26 report on the Jackson Clarion-Ledger's web site:

A man was shot in the chest today on the Jackson State University campus during an altercation in the student union's first floor, officials said.

It wasn't immediately known if the man, transported to the University of Mississippi Medical Center, was a JSU student. His condition also was not immediately known.

. . . "We have one young man in the hospital, and one young man in custody," JSU President Ronald Mason said.

"I don't know the reason. It's a real tragic thing."

Campus police apprehended the alleged gunman, Mason said. It was not immediately known if he was a JSU student.

Gabrielle Frazier, a sophomore English major from Jackson, said she is a friend of the victim, but knows only his first name. She said the victim is a member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity.

"When I got out of class, people were running and saying somebody was shot. I don't understand why anybody would shoot him," Frazier said. "He's an outgoing guy, and a lot of people know him. I'm still in shock." . . .

No. He's listed in fair condition. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family during this time.

Tom, I agree with you that this was needless. Even if the alleged shooter disrepsected the bruhs in some way, that was no reason for the guy to shoot one of the members!

This is crazy! Why are these fools acting like a gang. If they want to be thugs then they need to relenquish membership in an upstanding fraternity, leave college and join a gang. They can jump as many people as they want then.
