Student suspect arrested in fatal stabbing of USC professor on campus – Los Angeles Times

A USC psychology professor was stabbed to death inside a campus building Friday, allegedly by a student who was taken into custody, Los Angeles police said.

Bosco Tjan, a co-director of the Dornsife Cognitive Neuroimaging Center who joined the faculty in 2001, was identified as the victim by USC President C.L. Max Nikias.

“As the Trojan family mourns professor Tjan’s untimely passing, we will keep his family in our thoughts,” Nikias said in a prepared statement. He said counseling would be available for students.

Police received a 911 call from USC around 4:30 p.m. about a victim with multiple stab wounds, said LAPD Det. Meghan Aguilar. Responding firefighters found Tjan’s body inside the Seeley G. Mudd Building in the southwest corner of campus.
