Former UND provost shot, killed in SC (Update)
Jul 17, 2020 AT 1:18 pm



Former UND provost Tom DiLorenzo was shot and killed this morning (Fri) in a robbery in Charleston, South Carolina.

DiLorenzo was walking with his wife, Suzanne Austin, along a street of upscale shops and restaurants just blocks away from the College of Charleston, where Austin had just taken a job as provost.

Charleston police said the couple was approached by two individuals demanding money. One had a gun.

Police said DiLorenzo was shot at about 6:15 AM and taken to a hospital, where he died. Austin was not physically hurt.

Police said the suspects fled the scene. No arrests have been made, but police issued a photo of a silver 2005 Acura TL they believe was involved in the incident and they said “it is believed the vehicle was occupied by three black males possibly in their mid-to-late teens.”

DiLorenzo retired earlier this year after seven years at UND. He was 63.
