Police seek leads in Pa. college student's killing

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

Police are reviewing surveillance video in the killing of a Lackawanna College student who was fatally shot after a party near the school's northeastern Pennsylvania campus.

Twenty-two-year-old Rahsan Crowder died at a hospital Sunday morning after suffering gunshot wounds to the chest and thigh. Investigators have said they believe Crowder attended a party near the crime scene and may have been involved in some sort of argument.

Acting Scranton Police Chief Carl Graziano says it's possible alcohol was involved.

Graziano tells The Times-Tribune investigators are trying to re-creating the incident. They are working to enhance video from public and private surveillance cameras in the area.

Students at a memorial service Monday remembered Crowder as a jovial person from Philadelphia who was known as "Duke" and was studying sports management.
