A Cairo man has been arrested and charged by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) in connection to the murder of a Kennesaw State University student. Samuel Harris faces charges of murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. The incident occurred in front of the Austin Residence Complex on the Kennesaw Campus.

The victim, a female student, was fatally shot following a dispute. Harris, who is not a Kennesaw State student, fled the campus after the incident. The University issued a secure in place alert on May 18 after reports of an armed intruder, but the suspect was later detained by Cobb County Police.

“Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with the victim’s family and friends during this incredibly difficult time,” said KSU President Kathy S. Schwaig.

Kennesaw State University is providing support and resources to those affected by this tragedy.
