Mokaram Rauf, brother of Loyola student Mutahir Rauf, who was recently shot and killed, will speak to media on behalf of the family on Tuesday, December 9 at 9 a.m., in the Mundelein Center on Loyola University Chicago’s Lake Shore Campus.
In response to the tragic event that took the life of student Mutahir Rauf on Friday evening, I have met with leaders in numerous University departments to discuss the safety of our students, on and around our campuses, and how we can support our students, and each other, as we grieve Mutahir’s death. Below, please find updates from Campus Safety, Campus Transportation, and Student Development.
As we all continue to mourn the death of student Mutahir Rauf, we wanted to update you on the status of the investigation of his murder. The Chicago Police Department is the lead investigatory agency, and detectives are actively looking for information that will lead to the identification and arrest of the two offenders of this horrific crime.
We are shocked and saddened by the tragic and senseless event that took the life of one of our students on Friday evening. Our entire community mourns the loss of Mutahir Rauf, a fellow Loyolan, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this devastating time. This was a senseless act of violence, and one that has absolutely no place in a civil society.
I am writing this note to let you know that a Loyola student was shot and killed this evening in a shooting near Albion and Lakewood. An earlier note went out about the shooting, however we had no specific information at the time.
