One person was in custody Thursday in connection with the early morning shooting death of a Spelman College student hit by a stray bullet on the campus of nearby Clark Atlanta University.
The shooting happened about 12:30 a.m. in the 200 block of James P. Brawley Drive, according to the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office.
The victim, Jasmine Lynn, of Kansas City, Mo., was “walking southbound on James P. Brawley when she was struck in the chest by a stray round from a group of individuals involved in a physical altercation on Mitchell Street,” Atlanta police Lt. Keith Meadows said.
An 18-year-old student from Clark Atlanta was also wounded when he was struck in the wrist by a stray bullet, Meadows said.
That student’s name has not been released, but Clark Atlanta officials said he was treated at a local hospital and released.
