Officers responded to the 1100 block of 8th Street Northeast, about a block from the university, for a sound of gunshots. Mr. Troxler died from his injuries at the scene.

While the shooting occurred just a short distance from one of the entrances to the university campus, a police spokesman said officials do not think the shooting was related to the university.
