MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Friends and relatives mourned a 22-year-old Kansas State student who died in a shooting earlier this month.

Briona White was shot to death in Chicago while she was home over the summer.

The Manhattan Mercury reports (https://bit.ly/1hgaxUx ) White’s mother, Monica White, spoke to the crowd at the memorial service Tuesday night on the Kansas State campus. She described her daughter as a shining star.

Briona, a biology major, was set to return to Kansas State for her senior year this fall.

Her father, Kenneth White, said she had already her bags ready for the trip back to campus.

The Whites encouraged students to take advantage of the opportunities surrounding them and joined others at the service calling for peace.
