NEWARK — The New Jersey Institute of Technology on Monday offered a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the capture and prosecution of suspects involved in a robbery that left a student dead.

This is the second fatal robbery of a college student in this city's University Heights in less than two months.

Thomas S. Fennelly, chief assistant prosecutor for the Essex County Prosecutor's Office, said the male NJIT student was shot twice about 3:22 a.m. inside the Tau Kappa Epsilon house on the NJIT campus on Martin Luther King Boulevard.

The name of the victim, whom Fennelly said was pronounced dead at University Hospital at 5 a.m., was not released Monday morning.

CBS New York reported police are looking for two people in the shooting.

NJIT's campus faces Rutgers-Newark, where a student from Toms River last month was shot and killed on Halsey Street. Patel's roommate also was injured in the shooting. The NJIT and Rutgers-Newark shootings happened just three short blocks apart.

Two people have been charged in the slaying of Rutgers-Newark student Shani Patel, 21, of Toms River. Marcus Feliz, 25, of Newark, and Fraynned Ramirez, 26, of Hartford, Connecticut, are facing murder, robbery and felony murder charges.
