TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Tallahassee police say a Florida State University professor was the intended target when murdered at his home last week. Investigators have no suspects and are asking for tips from the public.

Officers found College of Law professor Dan Markel on Friday morning with an apparent gunshot wound. He later died at the hospital.

Police Chief Michael DeLeo said the investigation showed no signs of a burglary or robbery and added, “there is no evidence this was a random act.”

Markel primarily taught criminal law after graduating from Harvard Law School in 2001.

Police are looking for witnesses and asking anyone in the area of the 2100 block of Trescott Drive on Friday between 10 a.m. and noon to call 850-891-4462.
