Sacramento State's chancellor says those at the university are in mourning after learning of the death of a student who was shot with a pellet gun at a gathering away from the campus.
The Sacramento Police Department said officers were part of medical aid call last Friday at a home in Lycoming Court a little 3:00 a.m. When officers arrived, they said they found a young man who had been shot with a pellet gun. The victim was taken to a hospital by fire department paramedics where he later died.
In a statement to students and faculty, Sacramento State president Robert Nelsen identified the student as Will Molina.
Molina is said to have been a business major and was on track to graduate from the university next month.
Nelson noted that grief counselors are being made available for anyone on campus in need of support and that school officials and Molina's family are working on arrangements "to honor his memory."
