COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) --  Authorities say a man seen loading a gun near student housing at Georgia's Columbus State university was shot and fatally wounded by officers after a brief foot chase.

Police Chief Rus Drew told The Associated Press that officers were called at 2:30 p.m. Sunday to an area near some campus apartments and chased a man on foot. He says the man then turned to face officers when shots were fired and the man was wounded.

Bill Sutley, a university spokesman, told AP the man was taken by ambulance to a hospital and had died.

Drew says the man wasn't a student there and no lockdown was imposed because an "isolated threat" had been ended quickly. He says no one else was hurt and no students appeared to have been endangered.
