According to the university, the two students were traveling with a small group and were bystanders caught in the crossfire of a shooting between two groups on May 6. None of the other travelers were injured, NYU said.

In a statement, NYU said it mourned the students’ loss to what it called “senseless gunfire.”

“NYU grieves today with these students’ family, loved ones, and friends, whose lives ended tragically, suddenly, and far too early,” the school said.
