2 North Carolina A&T Students Killed at Party

October 3, 2016

Two students at North Carolina A&T University were shot and killed Sunday morning at an off-campus party. The Greensboro News & Record reported the local police said the two students who were killed -- Alisia Dieudonné, 19, and Ahmad Campbell, 21 -- were innocent bystanders when a fight broke out.

Harold S. Martin Sr., chancellor of the university, sent a message to students Sunday in which he expressed condolences to the friends and family members of the slain students. "Both Alisia and Ahmad were actively involved in campus life and vitally important members of the Aggie family," he wrote. He added that "this incident is extremely disturbing. Violence on or near our campus is unacceptable."

The university held a campus forum on safety issues Sunday afternoon, where officials urged students to stop attending off-campus house parties. "I plead with each and every one of you not to go to these house parties," said Mark Williams, the university's dean of students, according to a report in the News & Record. "I know there are party promoters that pay students to host these house parties. I don't know that that happened in this situation, but do not host these parties."
