A memorial will be held tonight at the Shrine Auditorium for two USC students killed in a pre-dawn shooting last week. Both were graduate students and both were from China.

Their deaths have been widely covered in the Chinese press, raising new questions about safety at the campus, which is located just south of downtown.

KPCC's Erika Aguilar reports on how students are reacting to the shootings.
