Hofstra Student Shot Dead During Home Invasion

"(CBS/AP) A female Hofstra University student who was fatally shot early Friday in a Long Island home was killed along with an armed suspect during a police-involved shooting as authorities responded to a home invasion robbery, police said, reports CBS New York.

The victim, identified by 1010WINS radio as Andrea Rebello, 21, from Westchester County, was reportedly in the home with her twin sister at the time of the break-in.  

Police said the other sister was not harmed, CBS New York reported."

From CBS News.
This is horrible - please pray for this young woman, her family and the other students in this house that will have to live with this.  Hofstra is a great school but near two of the highest crime neighborhoods in Nassau County:  Hempstead and Uniondale.  In 2004 there was a Hofstra student raped right off of California Avenue near where this home invasion took place.  Everyone needs to be aware of bad it is around there and consider living on campus.
