Report: Victim Had Raised Concerns About Alleged Shooter Dayvon Green

UMD police also found that Green had worked as a student aide for the department, according to The Baltimore Sun.

Stephen Rane, the 22-year-old University of Maryland student who was killed Tuesday when roommate Dayvon Maurice Green reportedly opened fire on his roommates, had previously expressed concerns about Green having a gun, The Baltimore Sun reports.

The Sun quotes Drew Needham, a senior and former roommate of Rane, as saying that Rane felt "uncomfortable in the house" given Green's mental illness and ownership of a firearm.

But Rane had not anticipated any violent behavior, Needham told the paper.

The Sun also notes a surprising discovery by University of Maryland police: that Green had worked as a student aide for the department for a brief period last year.

The role requires a background check but does not include access to weapons or records, Major Marc Limansky told the paper.

This event should serve to remind everyone that when you see a situation such as this, tell police. Clearly Mr. Rane was concerned about Mr. Green's mental health issue and his ownership of a handgun. No assurance that action would have been taken, but still worth taking .

An editor or the reporter of this post needs to look at the second paragraph and correct.

Thanks for flagging that, Jay—it's fixed now.
