Kahron M. Lee has been identified as the Virginia Union University student killed in an off-campus shooting.
Lee, 20, was a sophmore at the school who majored in computer information systems and lived in the Birches.
He was found shot in the apartment complex around midnight on February 24, which is located behind the university, reported WRIC.
“It’s hard to believe that I will never see him again; that’s just the reality of the situation and it’s hard to accept that,” said VUU student Sabrina Brisbane. “I don’t know, I mean I wish I could have turned him around, brought him with me. I wish he would have made a different step; it’s messed up.”
The university’s police chief, Carlton Edwards, released the following statement: “The Virginia Union University family is shocked and saddened at the senseless murder of Virginia Union student Kahron M. Lee. The shooting took place last night on Graham Road, in the vicinity of the Virginia Union campus. Mr. Lee was a 20-year-old Computer Information Systems major. He was a well-liked person who was active in the campus community. “
Police don’t have any suspects at this time but are investigating what happened.
