MILWAUKEE (AP) - A teacher at a Milwaukee high school says she was devastated to learn that her former student has been shot and killed at Purdue University.

Andrew Boldt graduated from Marquette University High School in 2010. The 21-year-old was killed Tuesday, and a suspect is in custody.

Boldt’s high school calculus teacher remembers him as a brilliant mathematician who was a role model to his classmates.

Jean Morrell says Boldt was a high-level thinker who was so impassioned about his work that he often stayed after class to talk about math and robotics.

She says he was a “phenomenal young man” with a great mind and an equally great heart. She says she’s sad he won’t get an opportunity to make his contribution to the world.
