The university confirmed a shooting victim killed over Spring Break was a former student.

“While Nicolas Belcher had been a student at USI studying computer science, he was not currently enrolled,” university spokesman Ben Luttrull said in an emailed statement.

Evansville Police responded to a shooting March 6 on Mesker Park Drive. Police said suspect 19-year-old Caleb Singer shot and killed Belcher outside Singer’s ex-girlfriend residence. Investigators believe that Singer confronted Belcher outside of his ex-girlfriend’s house before he shot and fatally wounded him inside of his vehicle.

Singer fled to Bowling Green, Kentucky where he was apprehended by police the same night at 2:15 a.m. and booked in the Warren County Regional Jail awaiting extradition to Indiana, according to his citation.

Evansville Police went to Bowling Green to interview Singer and will be seeking charges against him in Belcher’s death, according to a press release.
