Vigil set for slain Frostburg student

By Washington Post editors

Frostburg State University students will gather for a candlelight vigil in memory of a classmate shot in what police say was a confrontation with a fellow student.

Twenty-year-old Brandon Carroll of Waldorf was killed Sunday and another student was wounded. Tyrone Hall of Glen Burnie is charged with firing a shotgun at them at his off-campus home.

Carroll was a member of the school’s basketball team.

The Student Government Association is organizing the vigil for 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, with a march starting at the Upper Quad.

Meanwhile, Hall is headed for a bond review hearing, scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday in Cumberland.

The 21-year-old man is being held without bond on charges of first-degree murder.

He is charged with attempted first-degree murder in the shooting of 21-year-old Ellis Hartridge of Washington.
