Pennsylvania College Student is Beaten to Death Near Campus,2933,296135,00.html

KUTZTOWN, Pa. — A Kutztown University student was beaten to death on a downtown sidewalk early Friday by three men who evidently chose their victim at random, police said.
The suspects, all from Allentown, were charged with assaulting Kyle Quinn, 19, who was pronounced dead at a hospital about an hour after the attack. The district attorney said he anticipated filing homicide charges pending the results of an autopsy scheduled for Saturday.
Kutztown's president, F. Javier Cevallos, called the beating a "senseless isolated random act of violence" and urged students to be vigilant.
A police officer in the small college town happened upon the scene shortly before 2:30 a.m., saw Quinn on the ground and arrested the men, who are not students, Berks County District Attorney Mark Baldwin said.
"He had been beaten and was lying in a pool of blood on the sidewalk," Baldwin said.
The suspects were identified as Terry D. Kline Jr., who turned 22 on Thursday; his brother Kenneth R. Kline, 21; and Timothy R. Gearhart, 23.
