JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - We are following a developing story on Jackson State University's campus. Around 4:30 this morning, students at the Alexander dorm had to be evacuated after some sort of chemical reaction. We are told that a student was mixing some chemicals and they created a heavy smoke. (Initial reports had indicated an explosion.)
Students were allowed back into the dormitory about 6:30am. We have a crew on the scene and we'll bring you the latest when more details become available.
