Florida International Univ. student shot, killed

SWEETWATER, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities are investigating the shooting death of a 21-year-old Florida International University student near the campus.

Miami-Dade Police said that Michael Nicholas Zaldua died late Friday evening from gunshot wounds.

He was found in a parking garage that adjoins a student apartment complex located a few blocks away from the main university campus.

Police said that witnesses reported hearing gunshots in the parking garage.

FIU officials confirmed that Zaldua was a student.

But Dianne Fernandez, FIU broadcast media manager, put out a statement on Saturday saying that "there is nothing to indicate there is any danger to our FIU community."
