MIT graduate named person of interest in murder of Yale student

Police are searching for a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in connection with the fatal shooting of a Yale University student.

Investigators are looking to question Qinxuan Pan, 29, who has been named a person of interest in the murder of Kevin Jiang, 26, New Haven Police Chief Otoniel Reyes announced in a press conference Wednesday afternoon. Police say he is not a suspect in the case at this time. “I’m not saying he’s the shooter at this point,” Reyes said.

Pan was last seen at a Best Western hotel in North Haven, Connecticut, and is considered armed and dangerous, Reyes said.

Jiang, a former member of the Army National Guard and a Yale graduate student, was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds Saturday night near the university’s campus in New Haven, police said. Read from source….
