Business Student Shot by UC Berkeley Police Dies

Multiple news outlets are reporting that the undergraduate shot by UC Berkeley police died at Highland Hospital last night. The 32 year old Haas business school student was cornered in a third floor computer lab at 2:20 p.m. yesterday, after a staff member glimpsed a firearm in his backpack, SFAppeal reports. When campus police tried to apprehend the suspect, he brandished the gun, apparently with no intent to surrender. The suspect refused to comply after officers repeatedly ordered him to drop the weapon. One of them opened fire, shooting the student fatally. No one else was injured; both the Chron and Trib report there is no evidence to link this shooting to yesterday’s Occupy Cal demonstration.
