Gerald Williams, a 20-year-old student at Morgan State University, was fatally stabbed inside gated campus housing after a basketball game Monday night.
Although the Baltimore Sun reports that 15 to 20 people were involved in the fight, witnesses said Williams was trying to break up the fight when he was stabbed.
“This is a truly unnecessary act of violence and a tragic loss of life,” police spokesman Lt. Jarron Jackson told the paper.
Williams leaves behind many loved ones, including The Fab Empire’s creator, Joi-Marie.
The Murphy family is asking for any and all donations (large and small!) to help defray funeral costs for his mother.
