    A student who attended Bowie State University was killed after he was assaulted in an unprovoked attack on the University of Maryland College Park campus early Saturday morning, police said.

    The victim was with two friends near Montgomery Hall on Regents Drive at about 3 a.m. Saturday morning when he was attacked by a University of Maryland student, police said. He was seriously injured and taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    Police said the assault involved a knife, but it was not immediately clear if the victim was stabbed. 

    The altercation appeared to be random and unprovoked. 

    University police responded and took the male suspect into custody, authorities said. Charges of first-degree and second-degree murder against him are pending.

    The identities of the victim and the suspect have not been released. Police said the identity of the victim would be released after the family was notified, and the suspect's identity would be released after charges were officially filed against him.

    University of Maryland police Chief David Mitchell said the suspect had been drinking but would not comment on what effect, if any, that had on the incident.

    The president of Bowie State University, Mickey Burnim, said counseling services will be available to students and a moment of silence will be observed during the school's commencement on Tuesday.

    "Our first thoughts of condolence go to the family for this tremendous loss of a son, who had the promise of a bright future. Our prayers of concern also extend to those within the Bowie State University community as we try to cope with this tragic loss of life.

    "As we struggle to deal with our emotions, let’s find appropriate ways to express our sorrow and hope for justice. Let’s remember our words and actions have the power to heal and the power to hurt. Let's strive to use our actions to bring comfort and peace."

    University of Maryland President Wallace Loh said, in a statement, commencement exercises at UMd. on Sunday would also have a moment of silence.

    "Words cannot express my deep anguish over this horrific tragedy. My deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of the victim, and to the entire Bowie State community. I ask that every member of our campus community join me in keeping the victim’s family in their thoughts and prayers.

    "There is strength in our unity as we grieve. For this reason and in solidarity with the Bowie State community, we will honor a moment of silence to begin tomorrow's commencement exercises.

    "In addition, counselors are available (Saturday) from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Counseling Center in Shoemaker Hall for any members of our community who need support."

    Four teens are home safe after a scare during a kayaking trip in Peach Island in Norwalk Friday.

    Norwalk fire officials said the marine unit responded around 9 p.m. Friday after someone called 911 reporting they could hear cries for help from kids who were out of their boat and without lifejackets.

    Crews found four 19-year-old men on Peach Island after a quick search. The teens were cold and wet, but otherwise unharmed.

    The boys had left from Burwell Street in two two-person kayaks in the afternoon, and were heading back to shore at dark when they were knocked out of the kayaks and into the water. The vessels had lifejackets, but the teens were not wearing them and the lifejackets floated away when the boats flipped.

    Fire officials said the water temperature was only about 50 degrees, and remind boaters that a personal floatation device can save your life, especially in cold water.

    Aaron Hernandez requested to live with certain cellmates and apparently addressed rumors dating back to 2015 in seven handwritten letters from the Department of Correction obtained by NBC Boston.

    The documents were received after NBC Boston filed a public records request. The letters to correction officers are written requests by Hernandez to be moved to a different cell block with requests to bunk with specific inmates.

    “I am writing this letter so there is no confusions about me because I have been hearing things of being considered something which is false, so I wanted to clear all that,” he wrote.

    In another letter he sought to counter prison rumors a second time, writing, “I have been hearing from many or rather few thinking I (redacted), but that is false…”

    He described it as “false gossip,” adding, “What’s new?”

    “I’m just trying to be placed with people im (sic) close with… I am even requesting to (bunk up/celly up) with my brother (name redacted). We both want to,” he wrote.

    With a life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd, Hernandez told the guards in his request to move to cell block P2, he has “no enemies up there” and it is a place “that will be most peaceful” and wants to be “comfortable.”


    Names are redacted but he requested to move in with another inmate, writing “...me and him are very close and have been since the streets.” He continued, “He’s my heart and like a real brother to me.”

    In the letter, Hernandez suggested that if he can’t move to another cell block with the inmate he names specifically, that inmate could potentially move in with him in his current cell block. He lists two inmates to bunk with, one he calls “my heart” and the other “a brother.”

    Although Hernandez requests cellmates, he does write he prefers to live in a single cell, concerned people could steal his letters and law paper work to sell, get money and publicity. He feared that could hurt his case, and blamed the media for his situation. He ends one letter, “Please make it happen.”

    Eight people suffered non-life-threatening injuries Saturday when a Boeing 737 passenger jet collided with an airport utility truck on a taxiway at Los Angeles International Airport, authorities said.

    The collision happened just before 2:30 p.m. on the taxiway near Runway 25 Right shortly after Aeromexico Flight 642 from Mexico City landed, according to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

    The collision caused the utility/supply truck to overturn and all eight people on the truck, six men and two women, were injured, Humphrey said. "The two females are more seriously injured while the males have lesser injuries,'' he said.

    The nature of the injuries was not specified.

    There were no injuries on the Aeromexico jetliner that had approximately 146 passengers and crew on board, Humphrey said. There was damage to the right wing of the aircraft but there was no fuel spill or fire.

    A 22-year-old University of Maryland student was charged in the stabbing death of a Bowie State University student early Saturday morning in College Park, Maryland.

    Sean Christopher Urbanski of Severna Park, Maryland, was charged with first-degree murder, second-degree murder, and first-degree assault in the death of the unidentified student from Bowie State.

    Lawyer information for Urbanski was not immediately available.

    The victim was at a bus stop with two friends near Montgomery Hall on Regents Drive about 3 a.m. Saturday, when Urbanski allegedly attacked and stabbed him, police said. He was seriously injured and taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    "It never gets any worse than this," University of Maryland Police Chief David Mitchell said at a news conference Saturday afternoon. "When I sat with the victim's father, who is a military veteran, and his pastor and we shed tears together...I can tell you, it rips your heart out."

    The altercation appeared to be random and unprovoked, according to Mitchell.

    "The assailant in this case approached and, totally unprovoked, stabbed the victim in the chest," Mitchell said.

    The victim's friends then called 911. University police responded and took the suspect into custody by the bus stop where the stabbing happened, Mitchell said.

    Police said the victim's name would be released after his relatives were notified.

    "I met with his family earlier today. Needless to say, they're very distraught. They're shattered, but they do know that the assailant in this case has been arrested, and he will be appropriately charged," Mitchell said.

    Mitchell said the suspect had been drinking but would not comment on what effect, if any, that had on the incident.

    A university surveillance camera captured the attack.

    The president of Bowie State University, Mickey Burnim, said counseling services will be available to students and a moment of silence will be observed during the school's commencement on Tuesday.

    "Our first thoughts of condolence go to the family for this tremendous loss of a son, who had the promise of a bright future. Our prayers of concern also extend to those within the Bowie State University community as we try to cope with this tragic loss of life.

    Move over and slow down for emergency vehicles.

    That’s the message from Connecticut State Police after one of their cruisers was struck while pulled over on Route 2 in Glastonbury early Sunday morning.

    Runners said the weather was perfect for a race through Mystic today. Over 2,000 people laced up their shoes for the 3rd annual Mystic Half Marathon.

    The Mystic Half Marathon and 10K has been a hit since the first race in 2015.

    Organizers told NBC Connecticut the event typically sells out weeks in advance.

    The Hartford Marathon Foundation, which produces the event, says the course is one of the most beautiful in the state.

    “We run past the Mystic Seaport, down over the drawbridge, up the Mystic River into Stonington, past classic New England homes, stone walls, and beautiful old colonial houses,” said Josh Miller of the Hartford Marathon Foundation.

    Lindsay Boyle, Hamden: “It’s flat, it’s pretty, Mystic, we all love Mystic,” said Lindsay Boyle of Hamden.

    This was a record breaking year in more ways than one.

    A new course record was set in the 10K - 32 minutes and 35 seconds and more people signed up than ever before, which means more money was donated.

    “Over the past three races the Mystic Half-Marathon has raised $75,000 for local charity, money the local rotary club disperses throughout the community.

    “It’s completely critical. It is our number one fundraiser,” said Rhona Heyl, Mystic Rotary Club President

    But, with thousands of runners on the course, this race wouldn’t even be possible without the 250 volunteers.

    “Our volunteers really make or break us,” Volunteer Ambassador Stacy Brusa explained.

    Brusa waited at the finish line with fellow volunteers. She’s been helping out the Hartford Marathon Foundation for ten years.

    “I volunteer because I used to be a runner and now that I can’t run anymore it’s a great opportunity for me to still be part of the running community,” Brusa said.

    With so many people lining up to run, cheer, or volunteer, this event is expected to grow even bigger next year.

    One person is hurt and hundreds are without power after a car struck a pole on Route 140 in East Windsor Sunday.

    Police said they responded to the intersection of North Road and Shoham Road around 7 a.m.

    A car struck a utility pole, knocking the pole down. The pole landed on top of the vehicle, trapping the driver. She was extricated and police said she suffered only minor injuries.

    The crash knocked out power to more than 800 people. As of 2:20 p.m., that number was down to only 20 customers as Eversource crews worked to repair the damage.

    Environmental services were called in because of a transformer spill caused by the crash.

    Police said the road will be closed from Winkler Road to Route 5 for hours.

    Elon Musk has written a letter to Connecticut residents urging them to support a bill that would allow Tesla to sell directly to customers in Connecticut.

    The letter, originally published in the Hartford Courant, encourages residents to support HB 7097, a proposed bill that would authorize the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles to issue a dealer’s license to electric vehicle manufacturers. Tesla operates non-franchised dealerships to make direct sales to customers.

    Previous bills that would allow for Tesla to sell in this manner have failed in part due to opposition from traditional car dealers. Connecticut has nearly 300 auto dealers that employ about 14,000 people, according to the Connecticut Automotive Retailers Association, the group staunchly opposed to allowing Tesla's direct sales.

    Tesla Motors manufactures electric cars that don’t require the same maintenance as traditional automobiles with internal combustion engines. They also use a different business model than other auto companies. The company operates in more than 20 states and owns each of the stores where it sells cars directly to consumers.

    Musk argued in his letter than consumer should have the right to purchase a gasoline-powered vehicle or an electric vehicle directly from dealerships, and claimed that Connecticut was losing business to New York and Massachusetts by failing to allow Tesla sales.

    “Your elected officials have a choice,” Musk wrote. “They can vote to cede jobs to surrounding states, or choose a path that helps the state close its budget gap and build upon its history as a place for innovation and business growth.”

    Relatives of the Bowie State University student stabbed and killed on the University of Maryland's College Park campus identified him Sunday.

    Family members told News4 his name is Richard Collins III. Police have not formally identified the victim yet.

    A 22-year-old University of Maryland student has been charged Collins' death.

    Sean Christopher Urbanski, of Severna Park, Maryland, was charged with first- and second-degree murder and first-degree assault.

    President Donald Trump's two-day visit to Israel began Monday morning and there are five key issues that are expected to be the focus of his time in the country, NBC News reported.

    The most recent issue to come up is the security relationship between Israel and the U.S. It was reported that the intelligence Trump discussed with Russian officials came from Israel. Though an Israeli official said the relationship is unchanged, many wonder if Trump's discussion will affect it.

    Trump will be the first sitting U.S. president to visit the Western Wall, a holy site in Jerusalem. However, his administration has given conflicting statements about whether the wall is located in Israel.

    Also looming over the visit is the issues of moving the U.S. embassy, peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians and building a new coalition of the U.S., Israel and Sunni Arab leaders.

    Joining the ranks of the politicians and influential figures that had addressed the school in years past, Chicago Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein delivered a stirring address at Yale’s annual Class Day on Sunday.

    Epstein, a graduate of the school in 1995, recounted the Cubs’ monumental victory in Game 7 of the World Series, and he packaged the story of that evening in Cleveland with some life lessons for the graduates of the venerable school.

    “We were winners that night in Cleveland because when things went really, really wrong, our players knew each other so well that they could come together,” he said. “They trusted each other so much that they could open up and be vulnerable.”

    Epstein's speech begins at the 14-minute mark of the video: 

    Epstein also added his own brand of levity to the proceedings, shouting out his old college haunts and getting in a few select jabs at President Donald Trump, but the crux of his message was one of leadership and in pursuing a common goal, something that he felt that the Cubs had been able to do in winning their first championship in 108 years.

    “One day, I will tell (my sons) Jack and Drew that some players and some of us go through our careers with our heads down, focused on our craft and our tasks,” he said. “Other players and others amongst us go through our careers with our heads up, alert and aware of others, putting collective interest ahead of our own. It’s a choice.

    “That choice allows us to lead, and to be part of something greater than ourselves,” he added.

    Epstein, who took over as the head of the Cubs’ baseball operations department in 2011, oversaw the resurrection of a franchise that lost over 100 games in his first season at the helm, and ultimately helped to end the longest drought in professional sports when the Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians in Game 7 of the 2016 World Series.

    In spite of his reputation as a numbers geek, Epstein emphasized the power of empathy, compassion, and human interaction in his speech to the graduating class at Yale.

    “Even though so much can be quantified these days, the most important things cannot be,” he said. “When things go really, really wrong, and then when it rains on top of everything else, I ask you to choose to keep your heads up and come together.”

    Yale’s annual Class Day is an informal event before the more formal commencement exercises, which will take place on Monday. Other luminaries have addressed students in the past, including former Vice President Joe Biden.
