The statement clarified that the culprit fled the scene while the student was taken to the nearest hospital, but she died due to the fact that she was shot in the heart, amid a state of panic and horror of the scene.
The security said the culprit has not been identified yet.
It turned out that he was not a student at the university, but disguised so that no one could recognize him.
He then went towards the victim directly, stopped in front of her and shot her 5 times, one of which was in the head, and 4 in the body.
When the security forces attempted to arrest him, he shot in the air and fled, according to what was published by local media on Thursday.
The sources indicated that armed security men tried to chase after him, but he managed to escape, explaining that he is not more than 24 years old.
The girl, according to the sources, had just come out of taking her exam, and her companion was walking beside her, when the shooter came and sprayed five bullets at her.
