"They have reported that this does not appear to be a random act".

University spokesperson Ryan Yarosh said the school will release more information about the student, a 19-year-old male after the family is notified.

Jonathan Ross, superintendent of the Blind Brook school district in Westchester County, told the Journal News that Souza graduated past year from Blind Brook High School in Rye Brook, where he was a standout soccer player.

According to university officials, the suspect fled Windham Hall, a university dorm, after the 10:30 p.m. stabbing. The chief said New York State Police are assisting in the investigation.

An "Active Alert" was issued overnight for a reported stabbing on Binghamton University's campus, according to the college's website.

Police described the suspect as a light-skinned male who was wearing dark trousers and a Puma brand hooded sweatshirt.

On March 11, Binghamton nursing student Haley Anderson, 22, of Westbury, Long Island, was found murdered at an off-campus residence. She had been strangled.

The school canceled classes Monday due the "tragic event".

Employee Assistance Program staff are available to provide support to faculty and staff dealing with this loss. He was 19 years old.

"Investigators from multiple agencies have been interviewing numerous people throughout the night", a statement from the university read.
