USC Vice President for Student Affairs, Michael L. Jackson, sent this e-mail alert out to students this morning:

I regret to inform the USC community of the tragic death of one of our own. Cinematic Arts student Bryan Richard Frost was stabbed during an early morning off campus altercation, and was pronounced dead after transport to California Hospital. After the stabbing, the assailant fled the scene. The incident is being aggressively investigated by LAPD. I know that you all join me in sympathy for Bryan’s family and friends. Anyone affected by this tragedy is asked to contact the Student Counseling center at 213 740 8742 or Student Affairs at 213 740 2421.

Frost was reportedly walking with two other students near 28th Street and Orchard Avenue when the argument turned fight began for unknown reasons. USC officials alerted students last week about two sexual assaults.
