Attempted armed robbery at LSU leads to shooting

Around 2am on Saturday, Aug 20th, there was an attempted armed robbery on South Campus Dr. between Highland Rd. and East Campus Dr.

LSU Police said the victim was shot during an argument and transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

LSU officials said indications are this was an isolated incident and the victim and suspect know each other.

When LSU Police were notified of the incident, the timeframe of needing an emergency alert had passed. LSU sends out emergency text messages when there is an immediate threat to campus, or when we want students to take an action such as avoid an area.

Students, faculty and staff can sign up for those on their myLSU account page. Remember, if you see something suspicious on campus, please report it. LSU wants to hear from you, and you can report suspicious behavior anonymously. Call LSU Police at 225-578-3231 or if it’s an emergency, dial 911

This remains an active investigation, and if you have any information related to the incident, please contact LSU Police.
