A Nigerian student was shot and killed by his neighbor after they reportedly got into an argument over loud music.
18-year-old Oluwafemi Oyerinde, a freshman at the Kennesaw State University in Georgia was shot and killed outside his Stadium Village apartment shortly after 11:30 a.m. Sunday, October 6. He was studying mechanical engineering and had dreams of joining the military.
Oyerinde’s father Wole told Channel 2’s Christian Jennings they believe that the shooting stemmed from an argument over loud music.
It is with profound sadness that the University confirms the deceased victim, 18-year-old Oluwafemi Oyerinde, was an enrolled student at Kennesaw State University,” Demel said.
On Monday, October 14, a student-led candlelight vigil was held for Oyerinde at the Legacy Gazebo on the Kennesaw campus.
