SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — Investigators say a 22-year-old Lackawanna College student was fatally shot after a party in northeastern Pennsylvania.
Authorities say Harrisburg resident Rahsan Crowder was pronounced dead at a hospital around 3:45 a.m. Sunday, a little more than an hour after he was shot near the school’s campus in Scranton. Acting police Chief Carl Graziano says police had responded to the area for a report of a shooting and found Crowder with gunshot wounds.
Graziano says police believe Crowder had attended a party near the crime scene and had been involved in some sort of argument. He says police have possible suspects, but no arrest was immediately announced.
A university spokeswoman calls it “a terrible tragedy.” The spokeswoman, Wendy Evans, says the university is “absolutely heartbroken.”
