Two Ithaca Students Stabbed -- One Fatally -- at Cornell

August 29, 2016

Two students at Ithaca College were stabbed -- one of them fatally -- at Cornell University early Sunday morning. Officials from the Ithaca Police Department arrived on the Cornell campus just before 2 a.m. and responding to reports of "a large fight" and found the two men who had been stabbed. The fight followed a student-organized event at Cornell. The injured student was hospitalized, treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released. A statement from Ithaca College identified the student who was killed as Anthony Nazaire. The statement said: "Anthony was a 19-year-old sophomore majoring in business administration from Brooklyn, N.Y. He graduated from Brooklyn Theater Arts High School, and at IC he was a member of the executive board of Brothers4Brothers, a student organization dedicated to empowering men of color on our campus."
