"There were student injuries, but at this time, none have been reported as life-threatening," Fort Valley State University said on Twitter

The person who died is not a student, the university said. The university was put on lockdown as a safety measure, which has since been lifted after security after campus police determined there was no threat.

The bureau said the seven injured victims are in stable condition. It posted a picture of the "active scene" where the shooting occurred just blocks from the university.

As a precaution, the university canceled its homecoming parade on Saturday and said it would have extra security protocols during its homecoming game.

"Our thoughts are with the students and their families as they recover," the university said.
