A 24-year-old suspect has been arrested in last week's slaying of Bryan Richard Frost, 23. Frost was walking with two other students early morning on the September 18th near 28th Street and Orchard Avenue when the suspect, Travion Terrett Ford approached and an argument turned fight began for unknown reasons. Frost was killed by his stabbing wounds.

USC campus police said that "the crime neither involved robbery as a motive nor was it gang-related, but stemmed from a dispute between the suspect and victim," in a Trojan Alert to the campus community.

They added that "a female who was with the suspect at the time of the incident is being interviewed by the LAPD as a 'person of interest.'
