On February 6, 2021, police in New Haven, CT said they received "numerous" calls for help near the Yale University campus around 8:30 p.m. During a Monday press conference, New Haven Police Chief Otoniel Reyes said when first responders arrived on the scene, they found the body of a young man who was later identified as 26-year-old Kevin Jiang. The victim was shot multiple times and was pronounced dead on the scene in the East Rock neighborhood on Lawrence Street between Nicoll and Nash.
Reyes said his investigators are looking into information that this may not be a random act of violence. At this point it has not been confirmed if Jiang was inside or outside of his vehicle at the time of the murder.
President Peter Salovey said Sunday in a Yale News posting, “He was an extraordinary young man, and his loss is a shocking and senseless tragedy for his family, for all who loved him, and for our community.” The university said Jiang was a second-year graduate student in the (YSE) environmental program. He was set to graduate in the fall of 2021.
In a community press conference 48 hours after the incident, Salovey added Jiang was dedicated to helping his community with his volunteer efforts at a local homeless shelter. In addition to distributing food to the homeless, Jiang was also conducting environmental research on the mercury levels in fish. Yale News said, "At YSE, his research focused on tracking mercury levels of fish in the Quinnipiac River Watershed, work that would help inform fish consumption advisories."
Jiang leaves behind a fiance and his loving family. Salovey adds, "In this moment of heartbreak we have to embrace the ways, many ways in which we are all connected. We do that through our commitment through this community."
