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."
