State police investigators found 22-year-old Marcus Dupree Monday night after getting a 911 call from the alleged gunman.

The student said two men had walked into his dorm room and he thought one of them was reaching for a gun so he shot at them.

Police have not said if Dupree was a student.

They do say it’s possible the killing was a result of a drug deal gone bad.
