According to police, Nicholas Kapusniak, 20, of Waukesha, Wis., was shot and killed on March 1 during an early morning backyard party in St. Louis. Kapusniak was standing with friends when someone in a light-colored sedan fired gunshots. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

College President John Pieper described Kapusniak as an upbeat person with a positive and happy demeanor. The third-year student was a drummer in a band and was active in his fraternity, Alpha Zeta Omega.  

 

 

“We know each other well here,” Pieper told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “We take care of each other, we help students achieve their dreams. It was a sad, difficult day. I feel blessed we can be here for these young people and help them through this trauma.”
