San Jose State University officials identified the victims of Tuesday night’s murder/suicide as two graduating seniors. 25-year-old Marcory Tarlit Caliguiran and 26-year-old Thomas Kyle Williams were killed while sitting in Caliguiran’s car in a campus garage Tuesday evening. The alleged shooter,¬†Caliguiran’s 54-year-old husband, Napolean Lavarias Caliguiran, is believed to have shot himself after killing the two students. He died at a nearby hospital.
