Stephen Rane, the 22-year-old University of Maryland student who was killed Tuesday when roommate Dayvon Maurice Green reportedly opened fire on his roommates, had previously expressed concerns about Green having a gun, The Baltimore Sun reports.
The Sun quotes Drew Needham, a senior and former roommate of Rane, as saying that Rane felt "uncomfortable in the house" given Green's mental illness and ownership of a firearm.
But Rane had not anticipated any violent behavior, Needham told the paper.
The Sun also notes a surprising discovery by University of Maryland police: that Green had worked as a student aide for the department for a brief period last year.
The role requires a background check but does not include access to weapons or records, Major Marc Limansky told the paper.
