Victim in College Park Shooting Attended Howard County School

Stephen Rane went to Centennial High School. He was killed Tuesday in College Park.

The victim in Tuesday's fatal University of Maryland, College Park shooting attended high school in Ellicott City, according to school officials.

Stephen Rane, 22, of Silver Spring, attended Centennial High School, according to Rebecca Amani-Dove, Howard County Public Schools spokesperson. She could not, however, verify when or whether he graduated. 

The Baltimore Sun has reported Rane graduated in 2009.

He was an undergraduate student at University of Maryland, where he studied English, according to an article he wrote for the school's newspaper.

Police say another roommate was shot and injured; that student's name has not been released. 

According to police, 23-year-old Dayvon Maurice Green, an engineering graduate student, set several fires on the property of the home shared with Rane and three others. 

Rane and the unnamed roommate came out to investigate the fires, according to police, when Green pulled out a handgun from his waistband, shot them, then shot himself.

Police say Green had been taking medication for an unspecified mental illness. A University of Maryland spokesperson said the school was not "aware of his condition."
