GA college students robbed in their dorm room

Posted: Updated:

Three suspects are in custody after police say four students were robbed at gunpoint in their dorm room at Georgia State University in Atlanta.

One of the suspects is a Georgia State student and another is a former student, school officials said. The third has no known affiliation with the school.

School spokeswoman Andrea Jones says the two suspects who are not students were able to gain access to the dorm by using other students' identification cards.

Police say the suspects knocked on the door and two of the suspects pointed a hand gun in the students' faces and robbed them of an iPad and cellphones Wednesday evening.

Authorities say one suspect turned himself in to Atlanta police, another was turned in by his mother. The third was apprehended by campus police.
