A State University at Binghamton student died after he was stabbed on campus, university officials said on the university’s Facebook page.
“We are sad to report that a student has died due to a stabbing on campus that occurred at about 10:30 p.m. Sunday, April 15,” the Monday morning post read.
The victim was identified Joao Souza, a 19-year-old freshman engineering student. University officials said the student’s family has been notified and has requested privacy.
The incident “does not appear to be a random act,” officials said.
