2/3/2013

Police have arrested a Clark Atlanta University student in a shooting over a pickup basketball game that wounded another student at Morehouse College.

A statement from Morehouse officials Saturday said 21-year-old Amir Obafemi had been jailed in Fulton County on charges of felony aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon.

The injured student, identified as Cornileus Savage, remained hospitalized in stable condition Saturday after being shot in the forearm.

Morehouse Police Chief Vernon Worthy said four shots were fired Friday inside a campus gym and several witnesses took cellphone photos that police have as evidence.

A Saturday night basketball game between Morehouse and Clark Atlanta was canceled. A "stop the violence" rally was planned instead.

It was not immediately known if Obafemi had an attorney.
