An email from Hunter College:
"As many of you may have already heard, a Hunter student was tragically murdered inside his Queens home yesterday. David Higgins, 19, a graduate of the Bronx High School of Science, was in his first semester at Hunter.
We are in contact with David’s family and as soon as we have more information, we will let you know about funeral arrangements.
We offer our heartfelt condolences to David’s family, friends, and classmates.
