Parents of slain USC student urge security boost

July 30, 2014

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The parents of a University of Southern California graduate student who was beaten to death on his walk home say they are concerned about other students and hope the university increases security.

The victim, 24-year-old Xinran (SHING'-rahn) Ji, an engineering student from China, was attacked Thursday as he headed to his off-campus apartment after a study group. His parents, Ji Songbo and Du Jinhui, issued a statement Tuesday, the same day four teens were charged with murder.

The parents say they are struggling to get visas to come to the U.S. They say they are especially concerned about USC's Chinese students and urge the school to guarantee the safety of all those enrolled there.

They mentioned a 2012 incident in which two USC students from China were fatally shot during an off-campus robbery.
