A white college student at Mississippi State University was murdered last night. Police are looking for three black males seen fleeing the scene.
AP is censoring the race of the perpetrators. AP used the statement from MSU, but dropped the word “black” in the description. Tom Kent, deputy managing editor for standards and production at The Associated Press, recently confessed that AP intentionally censors the race of black crime suspects.
University president Mark Keenum said Sunday in a statement on the school’s website that there was no indication that there was a danger to others. Keenum says the killing of 21-year-old John Sanderson of Madison, Miss., was the first time a student had been shot on the campus.
Authorities have said three men suspected in the Saturday night shooting drove away from the building in a blue Ford Crown Victoria. As of late Sunday morning, no arrests had been made.
The campus of about 20,000 students is located in a rural area in the northeastern part of the state, about 125 miles northeast of Jackson.
