According to FAU, other students may have witnessed or have knowledge of the crime, and may be under investigation by Boca Raton Police.

The FAU Police Department was alerted by the Boca Raton Police Department that there was an off-campus shooting, near Northwest 20th Street and Northwest Fourth Avenue, the evening of Sunday, October 30.

The Boca Raton Police Department has been taking the lead regarding this investigation since it falls in their jurisdiction, and the FAU Police Department has been fully cooperative with them as they continue to move forward with the investigation.
