2 Students Killed at Miss. Universities

MISSISSIPPI — Two students were shot to death at two different Mississippi colleges late Saturday night. The killings do not appear to be connected.

John Sanderson was most likely shot multiple times in his dorm room at Mississippi State University, but he ended up just outside the door, ClarionLedger.com reports. Police are searching for three men who left after 10 p.m. in a blue Crown Victoria. They do not believe at this time that the suspects are students.

Just hours later, another student was killed at a student residence just off of the Jackson State University campus, The Student Printz reports. Another student was reportedly injured.
