One Ithaca College student was killed and another was injured after being stabbed amidst a “large fight” on neighboring Cornell University’s campus. Both schools are located in the town of Ithaca, New York.
CNN reports that:
Cornell University Police were called to the intersection in front of Olin Hall, which houses Cornell’s school of chemical and biomolecular engineering, just before 2 a.m. There, they found two men had been stabbed, according to a police news release.
One of the victims died at Cayuga Medical Cente , according to Ithaca College President Tom Rochon.
The student who survived was sent to Upstate Medical Center, a regional trauma center, to be treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries. That victim was released after receiving treatment, according to the Ithaca Police Department.
Police and Rochon said they were withholding the students’ identities until after their families are alerted.
Police are currently investigating, and so far no suspect has been publicly identified.
