Fullerton, California – The shooting at the University of California at Fullerton is the latest in a series of deadly events that have shaken the community.
UCF police chief John Mantea told reporters that the shooting happened near the entrance to a fraternity house and a campus parking garage.
The shooting happened in the entrance of the Phi Delta Kappa fraternity house on Wednesday night, as the frat house was taking its final walk through campus, police Chief John Masee said.
“It’s unfortunate and it’s horrific,” Manteo said.
Mantea said the shooter’s car was recovered and no arrests had been made.
He said investigators are still working to identify the person who fired the shots.
“We have not yet located a motive,” Mancea said.
“I think there is an indication that there may be some sort of motive,” said Fullerton Police Chief Steve Lazzaro.
The incident happened just hours after UCF students protested the death of an unarmed black teenager who was killed by police.
In response to the shooting, the UCF chapter of Phi Delta Sigma called for unity.
On Friday, UCF President Dr. Eric Barron announced that the university will host a prayer vigil on Saturday evening to honor the life of Dontre Hamilton, who was shot and killed by UCF officers on Wednesday.
Barron said the university’s first Muslim student body will hold a prayer service at the UC Davis campus on Saturday.
In a statement Friday, Hamilton’s family thanked the UCFs first responders for their service and said they had faith in the university and its leaders.
Hamilton’s parents said they would be “deeply grateful for the outpouring of love and support for our son.”
