MILWAUKEE (AP) - The president of a Milwaukee high school says the mother of a former student is in shock over her son’s shooting death at Purdue University.

The Rev. Warren Sazama of Marquette University High School says the family was having trouble comprehending Andrew Boldt’s slaying Tuesday. He says Boldt’s mother told him a person doesn’t just wake up in the morning expecting her son to be the victim of a one-in-a-million tragic shooting.

The 21-year-old Boldt was killed Tuesday about noon. A suspect has been arrested.

Sazama says Boldt’s mother was especially concerned about whether her youngest son, a senior at the same high school, could cope. Sazama says the Jesuit school will offer whatever prayerful support it can.

Sazama remembers Boldt as likable, kindhearted and a gifted student.
