2 people shot on Georgia State campus

ATLANTA — Two teenagers are in the hospital after a shootout inside a car at Georgia State University.
Both face attempted murder charges once they're out of the hospital after shooting each other, according to police.

Police said 18-year-old Byan Rhoden was shot once in the chest.

Police said Rhoden shot the driver of a Honda, 19-year-old Shelton Flournoy II, three times while attempting to sell him and a passenger drugs




The shooting took place in the parking lot of a residence hall on Piedmont around 9:30 Monday night.

Georgia State police recovered a gun and large amount of marijuana in the student's backpack.

"This is extremely concerning that we have a student that may have been engaged in the selling of drugs, with a firearm also,” Chief Carlton Mullis said.

Police said Rhoden lived in the dorm at Piedmont Avenue.

The two people in the car were not students.

There is a gate around the lot and security cameras, but anyone can just drive in.
