Outside of Georgia State’s University Commons dorm around 9:16 a.m., four suspects were arrested by the Georgia State University Police Department (GSUPD).

GSUPD’s chief Joseph Spillane said they were chasing after “four suspicious males” and that “they ran from us and we detained all of them.”

They had approached the suspects who then fled from police. One officer used his taser on one of the suspects. When GSUPD approached him, Spillane said the suspect was in possession of a gun and counterfeit money.

Spillane verified that there was not a shooting on campus and that all four suspects are not Georgia State students.

According to witnesses, one of the suspects’ face was covered in blood. At the scene, one of the suspects was already in a GSUPD patrol car.

Another suspect was on the ground in handcuffs, surrounded by GSUPD personnel and other first responders.

The story is developing. Check back for updates.
