MIAMI, Fla. - Florida International University is mourning the loss of junior running back Kendall Berry, Thursday night. He was stabbed to death just outside the doors of the Miami campus recreational center after an argument.
Miami-Dade police say that Berry, 22, was stabbed to death just after 9 p.m. on Thursday night, after a verbal argument took place just outside the front doors of the rec center.
His death comes less than a week before the football team's annual spring game.
Although police are still looking for suspects in the homicide, they do not believe the campus is in any immediate danger.
"Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kendall’s family," Florida International President Mark B. Rosenberg said in a statement after he heard the news about the student's death, "We are here to support them and our entire university community as all of us come to terms with this tragedy."
Berry sat out his sophomore season with a knee injury but showed some improvement after coming back this past year.
His best performance came in a 48-21 loss to the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders on November 11th, 2009.
Berry's 19 carries for 103 yards and three touchdowns were a team season high, but FIU couldn't make up for the 34 points that their defense initially gave up.
The next week Berry put up another decent performance recording 82 yards on 14 carries and scoring an additional two touchdowns.
He finished the 2009 season with 63 attempts for 264 yards and six touchdowns. His career numbers totaled 345 yards on 77 attempts and six touchdowns.
*UPDATE* 9:30 PM ET - March 26, 2010
Miami Police say they have made an arrest in the stabbing case of Kendall Berry.
