Early in the morning on May 20, Richard Collins III, a 23-year-old Bowie State University student, was fatally stabbed outside Montgomery Hall.
Sean Urbanski, a 22-year-old University of Maryland student, was charged with first- and second-degree murder as well as first-degree assault in connection with the stabbing.
Originally, University Police said the crime was not race-related. But UMPD is now working with the FBI to determine whether the stabbing was in fact a hate crime. Click here for all of The Diamondback’s coverage.
