GBI continues investigation of fatal Savannah State Shooting

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

 

"This happened right outside my door," said Darienne Shaffer, a SSU student. " I don't feel safe at all. I just want to pack up and go home."
 
Shafer lives just three doors down from where Lewis was killed. And like her, many students on campus are questioning their security, after Saturday morning's incident.
 
SSU say their students' safety is a top priority,  and they're always looking for ways to improve their current security measures – which includes a fully staffed  on campus police department and guards who monitor the school's front entrance.
 
"All they do at the gate is check your id," said student, Jasmine Scipio. "They don't check your car. That could have been anybody, there still could be people here with guns."
 
According to police someone shot Lewis in the back outside, outside of the school's University Village dormitory.
 
"I was outside walking and I heard the gun shots, and it was just non-stop shooting. It was just so, unreal," said Scipio.
 
The Georgia Bureau of Investigations, Metro Police and Savannah State police all responded to what they described as a chaotic scene.
GBI say it believes the suspects left the scene before investigators arrived.
 
Not only are students afraid the suspects are still on the loose, but they're also sad about a life cut short.
 
"We come to college to get an education to chase our dreams, and then to have somebody's life get ended," said Scipio. "What about their dreams?"
 
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call crime stoppers at 912-234-2020.
