Further details at this time aren’t known.

Multiple people also confirmed the news of Anderson’s death on Twitter, including UCF AD Terry Mohajir.

This is an incredibly tragic situation and young men in their early 20s aren’t supposed to be getting shot and killed.

It’s a horrifying situation and a young man’s life was snatched away from him right as he should have been entering his prime.

Hopefully, the police are able to get to the bottom of what happened and punish the responsible parties. Killing a young man is beyond words, and anyone found guilty should suffer the consequences.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Anderson’s friends and family during this incredibly difficult time.
