Detectives say that argument escalated into violence at an intersection just off campus.

Colorado University Chancellor, Phillip P. DiStefano issued a statement regarding the incident: “On behalf of the entire CU-Boulder community, I want to express my condolences to the family and friends of the victim of this senseless act of violence.  I also call on our entire campus community to reject violence unilaterally as a way of resolving disputes.  As we have seen in recent months here in Colorado and around the world, it stamps out our individual hopes, dreams and aspirations, and those of our communities. “

Scheurmann remains in custody at the Boulder County Jail.

Sean Hudson was a graduate student in Social Psychology in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience.
