WORCESTER, Mass. (WPRI) — The Worcester County District Attorney’s Office has identified a suspect wanted in connection to the deadly shooting at Worcester State University.
Authorities are searching for 18-year-old Kevin Rodriguez, with a last known address in Lawrence.
The DA’s office said he is wanted on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and armed assault with intent to murder.
Investigators say Rodriguez should be considered armed and dangerous, and anyone who sees him should immediately call 911.
On Saturday, campus police responded to the parking garage around 2:30 a.m. and found two men with gunshot wounds. Both were rushed to the hospital.
Police say 19-year-old Randy Armando Melendez Jr., of Southbridge., died and the second victim, a 21-year-old man, appears to have non-life-threatening injuries.
At this time, their identities are not being released but investigators say neither the victims nor the suspects were students of the university.
Anyone who knows where Rodriguez is has been asked to contact Massachusetts State Police Detectives at (508) 453-7589 or Massachusetts State Police Fugitive Apprehension Section at 1-800-KAPTURE (1 800-527-8873).
