MORROW, Ga. (CW69 News at 10) – Police have apprehended all four suspects in a shooting on the Clayton State University campus over the weekend.  They are now in the Troup County Jail.

On Saturday morning, CSUPD officers responded to a call of a student shot in Laker Hall.  CCSUPD officers and students rendered aid to the victim.  The student was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital where he remains in critical condition.

The investigators say that they discovered four males involved in the shooting incident.  Clayton State University’s on-campus surveillance system identified a vehicle leaving the area occupied by the shooters.  LaGrange Police Department located the empty car early that afternoon.
