A gun-related incident occurred near the apartment complexes on George Busbee Parkway Thursday evening resulting in the death of one victim.
No statement has been released confirming the time of the incident, but the victim was found inside an apartment at TownPark Crossing around 3:30 p.m., according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The victim has been confirmed dead due to his injuries.
At the time of publication, it is unknown whether or not the victim was a student at Kennesaw State. Additionally, no statement has been released confirming the number of suspects.
KSU released an emergency alert via text and phone to students at 4:42 p.m., as well as posting the alert on the KSU Emergency Management Twitter account.
The alert told students, faculty and staff to avoid the area of George Busbee Parkway between Frey Road and Chastain Road.

KSU tweeted at 6:03 p.m. that the campus was all clear to resume normal activity and there was no credible threat to campus safety.
