March 13, 2018

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — In a story Feb. 27 about a fatal shooting at Savannah State University, The Associated Press reported erroneously that victim Kaleel Clarke faced charges. Phillip Burke faced charges.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Authorities ID shooter, man killed at college in Georgia

Authorities say a man who killed another man in a shooting at a college in southeast Georgia have both been identified

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Authorities have identified a man who killed another man in a shooting at a college in southeast Georgia and the victim.

Savannah State University tells news outlets in a statement that 19-year-old Phillip Burke was arrested Sunday in the shooting that killed 20-year-old Kaleel Clarke on the school’s campus Saturday afternoon. University police Chief James Barnwell says neither Clarke or Burke were students.

The university says Clarke suffered several gunshot wounds and died at a hospital. Barnwell credits the suspect’s identification to new enhancements of campus surveillance systems and a new school safety app called LiveSafe.

WSAV reports Burke faces murder charges.

Authorities continue to investigate.
