One person has been killed and seven others injured in a shooting near an American university

One person was killed and seven others were injured in a shooting at a party near Fort Valley State University in South America, local officials said Saturday.

“Eight people were shot dead. One in eight died,” the Georgia Intelligence Agency (GBI) said on its Twitter account.

The deceased, 27, was not a university student, officials said.

So far, authorities have not reported the cause of the shooting, but explained that the injured are not in a critical condition and have been transferred to nearby medical centers.

The university announced the cancellation of several activities planned for the weekend.

Fort Valley, with about 2,300 students, is a historic African-American university located 100 miles from Atlanta, founded in 1895.
