ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) — Officials say an Ithaca College student was fatally stabbed and another student injured in a fight on Cornell University's campus.
Both schools posted statements saying the two students were stabbed around 2 a.m. Sunday during a large altercation.
Police say 19-year-old Anthony Nazaire, of Brooklyn, was taken to Cayuga Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. He was a student in the Ithaca College School of Business Administration.
The other unidentified Ithaca College student was treated for injuries and released.
Police say several hundred college-age people had attended a student-organized event in Willard Straight Hall and that several fights took place outside after the event ended.
The Ithaca Police Department is leading the investigation.
