Cal State Fullerton University consultant fatally stabbed in campus parking lot, police say  1 Month ago

Source:   USA Today  

A consultant to a California university was fatally stabbed in a campus parking lot on Monday morning, police said. The suspect is still at-large. 

Authorities believe the suspect targeted Steven Shek Keung Chan, who worked in international student admissions at California State University, Fullerton, Fullerton police Lt. Jon Radus said. 

Police responded to a report of an assault at 8:30 a.m. on the first day of the academic year and found the victim inside a silver Infinity with multiple stab wounds. Attempts to save the 57-year-old man were not successful, a university statement said. 

Investigators later found an a crude incendiary device near the car, Radus told local news outlets. The suspect did not set off the device, he said, but it was capable of starting a fire. 

“We do not know motive at this point for what occurred,” Radus said. “We do not believe there is a random stabber.” 

Authorities described the suspect as an Asian man in his mid-20s with black hair wearing black pants and a black shirt. Police said they sent tracking dogs after him because he was last seen on foot and do not believe he is an active threat to the community.

Campus authorities were not aware of any threats against Chan, Radus said. The victim lived in Hacienda Heights, police said. 

University officials increased security on campus and offered counseling and support services. Classes begin later this week at the nearly 40,000-student commuter school in Orange County, according to the university's calendar. 

“Our hearts and prayers go out to the family of the victim and all those affected by this tragic and senseless loss,” Fullerton President Framroze Virjee said in a statement. “The safety and support of our Titan family remains our top priority, now and in the hours and days to come.”
