Teen killed in shooting at off-campus apartment near Kutztown University

READING, Pennsylvania (WPVI) — The death of an 18-year-old from Reading has been ruled a homicide after a shooting near Kutztown University this weekend.

Gunshots rang out just before 1 a.m. Saturday at the Advantage Point off-campus student apartment complex.

The victim, identified as Diego Velazquez, died in the shooting. He wasn’t a Kutztown student.

A witness says she was on the same floor when shots rang out.

“I heard like three loud claps, like boom, boom, boom… I’ve never heard a gun in my life, but I knew it was a gun. I looked at my friend like, ‘Oh my god, what are we doing? ?’ So we went into the room, called public safety, and then about six squad cars lined up,” the witness recalled.

Investigators have not released any information about a possible suspect or motive.
