“It is with such a heavy heart and a deep and profound sense of sadness that I inform you that our colleague and friend, Steven Chan, a beloved and long-serving member of the Titan Family, passed away this morning after a tragic and senseless attack in the parking lot behind College Park,” a statement from university president Framroze Virjee read.
“Steven, who served as our CSUF Director of Budget and Finance and Student Services for University Extended Education from 2009 until his retirement in 2017, returned to campus as a special consultant in early 2019 to provide his sage guidance and wisdom. I did not have the honor of knowing Steven personally or working with him directly, but over the past few hours, in providing a shoulder to lean on for those who were close to him, it is clear that he was beloved for his commitment to and passion for both Cal State Fullerton and our Titan Family.”
The suspect has been described as an Asian man in his mid-20s with black hair and who was last seen wearing a black shirt and black pants.
“During the course of the investigation, a backpack, believed to have been left by the suspect, was located underneath the victim’s vehicle,” Fullerton said in their statement released Tuesday. “Inside the backpack, FPD investigators located an incendiary device, along with numerous items that were consistent with a kidnapping attempt or plot, including zip ties, wigs, and other disguise materials.”
