Parents and relatives of the two USC grad students that were shot and killed near campus last week visited the scene of the crime yesterday, reports the LA Times.

Ming Qu and Ying Wu were shot while sitting in a parked car in the early hours of the morning last Wednesday. It's not clear what the motivation for the shooting was, and no suspects have been identified.

Both Qu and Wu were 23 years old, and both were engineering students who came to the US from China to study.

Their relatives were also slated to meet with police detectives to discuss what happened on the night of the shooting.
