Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Philadelphia college student killed as city surges past 500 homicides in 2021”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A Temple University student just months away from graduating was fatally shot in Philadelphia, which has seen more than 500 murders this year alone, college officials said.

Samuel Sean Collington, 21, of Prospect Park, Pa., died from fatal gunshot wounds during an apparent attempted robbery Sunday afternoon near the North Philadelphia campus, Temple University said in a statement.

“This attack … only further highlights the senseless gun violence that continues to grip the city of Philadelphia,” said Temple’s executive director of public safety, Charlie Leone. “We mourn the loss of a bright and thriving political science student, and share in the wrenching grief of his family and friends.”

The senior majoring in political science was set to graduate from Temple’s College of Liberal Arts in the spring, Leone said. He also served as a democracy fellow for the Office of the Philadelphia City Commissioners, university officials said.

“This is a true tragedy in every sense of the word,” Leone said. “As a father, this truly breaks my heart and is incomprehensible.”
