STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) - You don't need a passcode or security card to get into Campus Crossing or many of the other off-campus apartment complexes near Georgia Southern. The traffic - by car or on foot - stays constant almost 24 hours a day.
The Statesboro Police Department continues to investigate how a young man got here from Savannah and how he was eventually shot and killed.
Just after midnight Wednesday, police arrived after a neighbor heard shots and called 911. They found 24-year-old Vernon Hunter wounded.
Police have not said if they've found anyone who knew Hunter or why he was in town or how he got here from Savannah.
They have offered a cash reward for information.
In the meantime, one resident told me off-camera the complex sent them letters advising basic safety tips - like locking doors and cars - in part due to the walk-through traffic.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Statesboro Police - by phone or online - and you can do that anonymously.
The management at Campus Crossings at Statesboro released the following statement addressing the incident:
