BROADCAST TRANSCRIPT:

Green's killing marked the third homicide within a 24-hour period when it happened August 1. His death hit the FAMU community hard.

FAMU Vice President, William E. Hudson, says the University plans to have an on-campus memorial on August 28th.

It’ll be in Lee Hall from 6 to 7 in the evening.

People on campus who knew Green tell me his death has been tough.

"FAMU has had a great loss. A great loss for the students and for the prospective students coming here," said Barry Wells.

In the meantime, Green's public viewing will be held on Friday, Aug 10 at 3 p.m. at the St. Luke Missionary Baptist Church. His funeral service will be held Saturday at the Rivertown Community Church at 11 a.m. in Marianna.

TPD says green had recently taken numerous steps to increase safety in his home. Their investigation shows he bought a security camera an hour before his death.
