Mr. Henderson was from Atlanta. He lived in Alexander Hall on the JSU campus. His death comes just hours after a Mississippi State University student, John Sanderson 21, was shot and died from his wounds in a dormitory on Saturday night. In that shooting, three suspects fled the scene. Read that story here.

UPDATE 5 pm CDT 3-26-12: Still little information available, but Nolan’s grandmother said the father was told that Nolan “bumped into someone” at the pool party, apologized and a fight began and then he was shot. More when news is available.

UPDATE 3-27-12: Ryan Henderson’s family is speaking out. There are still no suspects or motive. See the update here.
