A Louisiana college student was shot and killed in her vehicle early Friday morning, authorities said.

Allison Rice, 21, of Geismar, died in the shooting that occurred at about 2:19 a.m. on the 1500 block of Government Street, according to a statement from the Baton Rouge Police Department.

“Rice was shot multiple times while sitting in the driver’s seat of her vehicle. Rice died at the scene,” police said.

The motive and the suspect or suspects are unknown, police said.

When police were reached on Saturday, they provided NBC News with its statement about the shooting and declined to answer additional questions.

The shooting happened about three miles from campus. Baton Rouge Mayor Sharon Weston Broome condemned the violence in a statement.

“My heart goes out to the family, loved ones and classmates of Allison Rice, a young LSU student who had her whole life ahead of her. This senseless violence is completely unacceptable and Baton Rouge officers are conducting a thorough investigation to bring the perpetrator to justice,” Broome said.

“Our university community is an essential part of the fabric of Baton Rouge. As we welcome students from across our state and across the country, it is paramount that we create a safe environment. I am coordinating a meeting with the presidents of LSU and Southern University, the BRCC chancellor, the student government, the BRPD and the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office to discuss safety for all our students in Baton Rouge.”

LSU said Saturday Rice was a senior studying marketing.

“The LSU community is saddened to learn that senior Allison Rice has been murdered. Her family and friends are in our thoughts and we encourage anyone with more information about this crime to contact the Baton Rouge Police Department,” says LSU spokesman Ernie Ballard.
