One Dead After Shooting at Cornell Apartment

The Cornell Daily Sun reports on a disturbing incident at the University-owned Maple Hill Apartments last night:

A shooting occurred at 301 Maple Ave. around 2:15 a.m. Tuesday. When police arrived, they found Paul Garcia, 47, of New York City dead in the parking lot of University-owned Maple Hill Apartments, according to The Ithaca Journal.

“The Sheriff’s Office does not believe the incident to be a random event, and has no reason to suspect that tenants of the complex are in danger,” Cornell Police said in a crime alert posted on the University’s website at 9:49 a.m. An earlier alert at 3:25 a.m. had urged people in the immediate area to “take shelter in place.”

Thankfully, students are no longer believed to be in danger, but still, much love to friends at Cornell. Like us, the school (and town) has gone through a lot lately.
