Tempe Police: ASU student killed in car shooting

ASU finance sophomore Yue Jiang was shot by another driver following a car accident on Jan. 16, according to an announcement by ASU's Executive Vice President and Provost Mark Searle.

Yue, a 19-year-old student from the Chongqing province in China, was returning from a shopping trip with a friend when police say 32-year-old Holly Davis shot her after their cars had collided at the intersection of Broadway and McClintock.

Davis, who police say fled the area after the incident, has since been placed in the custody of Tempe Police.

"We would like to thank the Tempe Police Department for their quick work in apprehending the suspect believed responsible for Yue’s death, and the officers from the ASU Police Department who responded to the scene," Searle wrote in the statement.

According to the statement, officials in the Dean of Students office will work to offer support to Yue’s friends and family following their loss.

Searle said Yue's death is felt by the entire ASU community.

"Please know that this incident was as unusual as it was tragic," he said. "ASU and the city of Tempe have built a strong partnership among our police departments to make the ASU campus and the Tempe community safe places to live and study."
