I am very sad to confirm that Ahmednur Ali, a third-year Augsburg
student, was shot and killed Monday evening in Currie Park,
approximately 6 blocks west of the Augsburg campus in Minneapolis. The shooting
occurred at approximately 5:15 p.m. on Sept. 22, and the College received official
confirmation of the student’s identity early this morning.
Our prayers are with Ahmednur’s family and friends. The Augsburg community will gather to remember Ahmednur in the Foss
Chapel at 11:20 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 23.
We also invite Augsburg faculty, staff and students to attend a special Community Time at 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon in the Foss Chapel.
– Paul C. Pribbenow
President of Augsburg College
