BATON ROUGE - Southern University plans to give a posthumous degree to a student killed in an attempted carjacking.

The university said Friday its board of supervisors agreed to grant JoVonté Barber the degree.

Barber, 22, died in March after two juveniles shot into his car several times. Barber was brought to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries.
