BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A former FAU football player, now a Boca Raton Police Officer, shot and killed a current FAU student after an alleged violent struggle and carjacking.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office just released the names of the victim and the police officer nearly 72 hours after the Friday night crime spree and killing.
BocaNewsNow.com made several requests for the names throughout the weekend.
Adam Christian Donohue, 20, a student at Florida Atlantic University, was shot and killed after allegedly carjacking a taxicab. Donohue allegedly failed at carjacking a Comcast worker.
Donohue, who a background check reveals lived in Iowa, the Tampa area, Boca Raton and Delray Beach, is seen holding a gun in the Facebook photo above. An apparent friend tells BocaNewsNow.com that the photo was of Adam playing a video game. There are several photos of him with similar weaponry on his Facebook page. He is a former wrestler and wrote that he is a fan of FAU Rugby.
Donohue has no criminal record in Palm Beach County.
The officer has been identified as Brian Pare. While we are reminded that Florida Statute 119 protects information about active police officers, an FAU Football player with that name who graduated from Spanish River High School and majored in Criminal Justice is featured on this FAU Website.
