The Statesboro Police Department is investigating an aggravated assault that took place at an off-campus apartment near Georgia Southern University, Thursday afternoon. 

Around 3:42 p.m., Statesboro Police received notification of an incident of shots fired at Campus Crossing Apartments. Officers responded to secure the scene and begin an investigation. The incident is being investigated as an aggravated assault, with three confirmed victims who suffered gunshot wounds. At this time, none appear to be life-threatening.
