STARKVILLE, Miss., March 25 (UPI) -- Police Sunday searched for three men suspected in the fatal shooting of a student at a residence hall on the Mississippi State University Starkville campus.

Campus police received a 911 call reporting the shooting at Evans Hall at about 10 p.m. Saturday, MSU Vice President for Student Affairs Bill Kibler said. The student, whose name was not reported, died shortly after being taken to OCH Regional Medical Center, WTVA-TV, Tupelo, Miss., reported Sunday.

Kibler said he believes this is the first fatal shooting to happen at an MSU residence hall.

"This is a terrible tragedy that's occurred on our campus," Kibler said. "We've lost the life of one of our students. Our sympathies go out to the family."

The three men, who Kibler said do not appear to be students, fled the scene in a late-model, blue Ford Crown Victoria.
