GSU Student Killed in New Orleans

Police in New Orleans are looking for answers in the death of a Georgia Southern student. Twenty-five-year-old Levon Jones died Friday night after a fight with bouncers outside the Razzoo club in New Orleans.

Friends of the GSU senior say a group of bouncers beat and choked him. One witness said that one bouncer choked Jones while three others held him down.

The coroner's office has yet to determine a cause of death, and no arrests had been made.
