Two NYU Students ki!!ed In Puerto Rico During Vacation Sh00ting

Two New York University business students were ki!!ed on vacation in Puerto Rico over the weekend, school officials said.

The victims were identified as Franco Medina Angulo and Sergio Palomino Ruiz, international students from Peru who were enrolled in the Stern School of Business.

A school representative claimed they were on vacation in Puerto Rico with a group to celebrate a birthday before finals when things went wrong.

According to a tweet from the official account of NBC New York:-

They were bystanders “caught in an altercation between two unrelated groups” when they were ki!!ed early Saturday, NYU spokesperson John Beckman said in a statement.

He called them “victims of senseless, tragic gunfire.” According to authorities in Puerto Rico, the incident occurred in front of a business on Loiza Street in San Juan.

The police department’s Criminal Investigations Corps, which is investigating, shared video showing a woman sh00ting from the sidewalk and asked for help identifying her.

“The University has been in touch with the remaining group members to offer them support and aid; none of the others were injured,” Beckman said in a statement. “NYU has also reached out to the families of the slain students to provide whatever assistance we can and to express the sympathies of the University community.”

Counseling services will be made available to program participants and close friends of the ki!!ed youngsters.

“NYU grieves today with these students’ family, loved ones, and friends, whose lives ended tragically, suddenly, and far too early.”

A dean for the Stern School of Business said a scholarship will be established in each of Angulo’s and Ruiz’s names, NBC New York reported.

A fundraiser gathering donations to support their families had raised over $44,000 as of Tuesday.
