Slain BU student’s passion recalled
Shooting stuns college, friends
Boston University identified the graduate student shot to death early Thursday morning in Allston as Kanagala Seshadri Rao, a 24-year-old from eastern India who enrolled in a highly selective management program last fall. Rao had been shot in the head and leg and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to officials. Kenneth W. Freeman, dean of the School of Management, described Rao as a bright young man who attracted many friends and won the respect of faculty and staff with his “positive, can-do’’ attitude.
