UNIONDALE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Hofstra University alumni have started a petition demanding better security for students who live off-campus.
This comes in the wake of a home invasion that ended with 21-year-old student Andrea Rebello being shot dead by a police officer.
As many as 2,000 people have already signed the petition to increase security.
“In my four years in Hofstra, I saw break-ins. I saw robberies,” Cassie Goldberg, one of the alums pushing for the change, told WCBS 880 reporter Sophia Hall.
