Last Thursday, Spelman student Jasmine Lynn was fatally struck by a stray bullet near the campus of Clark Atlanta University. The chest wound Lynn suffered allegedly came from “a group of individuals involved in a physical altercation on Mitchell Street.” 
Originally from Kansas City, Mo., Lynn had just begun her sophomore year at Spelman College with plans on majoring in psychology and majoring in business. An 18-year-old student (name unreleased) from Clark Atlanta was also hit by a stray bullet, suffering injuries to the wrist. Our hearts and prayers go out to Jasmine Lynn and her family. Another all too common instance of a young, black promising life taken too soon.
