Binghamton University officials have canceled classes for Monday, April 16, after a first-year student was stabbed to death on campus the night before.  Officials say it happened at 10:30 p.m on Sunday, April 15. 

University spokesperson Ryan Yarosh said the school will release more information about the student, a 19-year-old male after the family is notified. BU said it was in the process of doing that Monday morning. 

The suspect is described as a light-skinned male wearing dark pants and a dark, Puma hooded sweatshirt.  Additional details will be provided as soon as possible.

Anyone with information should call Binghamton University Police at 607-777-2393.

In a statement, Yarosh said investigators from multiple agencies had been interviewing several people throughout the night and they don't believe it was a random act.

The school is offering numerous counseling services for students and faculty.
