If you read this blog semi-regularly, it’s a pretty sure bet that you’re a huge Seton Hall hoops fan. But we all have to remember that Seton Hall is a university first, basketball team second. First and foremost, Seton Hall is a tight-knit community of students, faculty, and staff.
Last night, that community was rocked by a terrifying incident. At around 8:30 pm, a gunshot rang out on campus. 22 year-old Anthony Papalia, from Aberdeen, NJ, had attempted suicide in his vehicle near Xavier Hall. Although Papalia is not a student at Seton Hall, he was believed to be visiting a female friend of his who lived on campus.
Papalia was rushed to University Hospital in Newark immediately after the incident, and he is currently in stable condition.
We wish Anthony and his family the best at this difficult time.
