Michigan State University students gathered for a candlelight vigil Sunday night in honor of a fellow student who was shot and killed Friday.

Dominique Nolff, a 20-year-old from Middleville, was pronounced dead Saturday morning after suffering multiple gunshot wounds Friday night in his Cedar Village apartment, just off campus.

"This does not appear to be a random act," East Lansing Police said in a statement.

Nolff's roommate, a 20-year-old from Grand Haven whose name has not been released, was also shot. He was treated and later released from a hospital.

Police found the students after responding to a call at about 8:45 p.m. Friday night, MSU Police said in a statement.

As of Sunday afternoon, no arrests have been made in connection to the case. Police have described the suspect as a man in his early-to-mid 20s.
