MYSTERY surrounds the discovery of a college student found dead in her car after a night out with friends.
Allison Rice, 21, of Geismar, Louisiana, was fatally shot in her vehicle early Friday morning.
According to Baton Rouge Police, the shooting happened around 2:19 a.m. on the 1500 block of Government Street.
Cops said in a statement: “Rice was shot multiple times while sitting in the driver’s seat of her vehicle. Rice died at the scene.”
The motive for the fatal shooting and the suspect remain unknown.
The college student was reportedly traveling with a group of friends in the Mid City area of Baton Rouge before the incident.
As she tried to do a U-turn when her car got stuck behind a train just a few miles from campus, someone started filming WWLTV reports.
A source told WAFB that at least “five or six” bullets were put in the student’s car.
Allison was a senior at LSU majoring in marketing.
LSU issued a statement following her death that read, “The LSU community is saddened to hear that senior Allison Rice was killed overnight.
“Your family and friends are on our minds and we encourage anyone with more information about this crime to contact Baton Rouge Police.
“Any of her friends and classmates who would like to speak to someone about this or need help processing this loss can contact the Mental Health Service at the Student Health Center (225-578-8774).”
Allison had recently quit her job at The Shed BBQ, where she worked with her two brothers, due to an internship coming up.
Luke Forstmann, the restaurant’s owner, told the outlet: “She had such an amazing, bright future and everything was on the up and she was about to graduate.
“And it’s just so pointless and devastating that someone as smart as her is being taken from us so soon.”
The investigation into the student’s death is ongoing.
