LOS ANGELES (AP) Los Angeles police say a University of Southern California student from Idaho has been fatally stabbed outside an apartment building near the campus.
Police spokesman Lt. John Romero says 23-year-old Bryan Richard Frost was walking with two friends early Thursday when a man yelled at the group.
The comment provoked a reaction, and things escalated to where Frost and the man were fighting.
Frost was stabbed and pronounced dead at a hospital a short time later. He was a cinema arts student from Eagle, Idaho.
In the hours after the stabbing, USC officials text-messaged thousands of staff members and students informing them of the killing.
