Stray Bullet Takes Spelman Student Too Soon

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.” [1]

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.
