A suspect has been arrested in connection with the stabbing death of a retired college administrator at the California State University, Fullerton campus, officials said Thursday.
Fullerton police Lt. John Radus told Fox News a person had been arrested in the death of Steven Keung Chan but declined to provide other details. Officials have scheduled a news conference for Thursday afternoon where they will release more information, he said.
Chan, 57, was found stabbed multiple times inside his Infiniti vehicle in a campus parking lot on Monday, the first day of fall semester classes.
Investigators said he apparently was targeted.
Police uncovered a backpack from underneath Chan’s car containing zip ties, wigs and other materials that could potentially be used as a disguise, which seemed to suggest the attack was not random and could have been an attempted abduction.

Chan worked as a consultant with the school. He previously worked as the director of budget and finance and student services for university extended education before he retired in 2017.
