South Carolina State University President Thomas Elzey announced at about 6 p.m. that the student died. He did not identify the victim, but did speak a little about him.

\”He was a very nice young man,\” Elzey said, fighting back tears in a brief statement to reporters. \”And it hurts. It hurts us all.\”

Elzey said \”we are pulling together as a community,\” announcing that counselors would be made available to grieving students.

\”Our first order of business is to make sure that our students are safe,\” the school president said.
