Police Beat: Stabbing on Full Sail campus, another stabbing in Azalea Park leaves teen dead
Today a student was stabbed in a statistics class at Full Sail University. Police are saying it was a hate crime. A 29-year-old student named Xavier Nunez apparently began shouting racial slurs at a black student, then stabbed him in the neck with a screwdriver. We’re told by sources at Full Sail that the student who was stabbed did not sustain life-threatening injuries.
This comes just days after four people were stabbed outside Boss nightclub downtown and a triple shooting at an apartment complex near Conroy Road.
Police also just reported today that they are on the scene of another stabbing in Orlando, this one on Ira Street in Azalea Park, where they discovered a 17-year-old male suffering from stab wounds. “The victim was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead,” police say. No additional details are available.
