Stabbing on BU's Campus, Suspect At Large

A college freshman was stabbed to death on his State University of NY campus Sunday night in what officials said was a targeted attack.

University Police responded to room G17 of Windham Hall at 10:23 p.m. Sunday after reports of an assault, and upon arrival found Souza in a suite with stab wounds.

In the meantime, university officials say student safety isn't at risk - but they're reminding students to lock their doors and keep their BU IDs on them at all times. Authorities say it did not appear to a random act.

The suspected assailant remained at large.

University police released few details about the ongoing investigation and said it's possible the suspect was still armed.

Police searched the area around Windham Hall and areas like the Nature Preserve throughout the day.

Souza was a 2017 graduate of Blind Brook High School in Rye Brook, NY, where he was a star soccer player, the Journal News/lohud.com of Westchester County reported.

The school said police now are confident it was not a random act.
