School Shooting Suspect Arrested

A 19-year-old student from Savannah State University faces charges for shooting another student.

Police arrested Devon McIntosh Friday, after finding him hiding in the trunk of his car.
Witnesses who saw the shooting earlier that morning said McIntosh and another student had a fight.
They identified McIntosh immediately, so police were able to track him
Down.

A police officer said, "I’m assuming he was there just to conceal himself until he had the cover of darkness to make his escape and this is only an assumption because we really don't know and in situations like this people don't think, they panic.
He committed an offense, a horrible offense, and he probably did not know what he was doing. He knew the campus was locked down and that we were aware of the fact of his identity so I think he just hid."

The victim had surgery to his arm and abdomen, but is expected to recover.

McIntosh faces charges of aggravated assault.
