Memorial services have been set for a University of Maryland senior who was fatally at his off-campus home in College Park.

Stephen Alex Rane, 22, will be remembered during a service Saturday at the Mauger Givnish Funeral Home in Malvern, Pa. He will be buried at Philadelphia Memorial Park in Frazer, Pa.

Police said Rane, of Silver Spring, died Tuesday after one of his housemates, Dayvon Maurice Green, set several small fires in the basement of their rented home and ambushed Rane and another housemate when they ran outside.

"It's always the most tragic thing, of course, to lose a young person to sudden death," a neighbor told News4's Pat Collins.

Green, a graduate student in engineering, also shot the other roommate present, 22-year-old Neal Oa, before killing himself, authorities said. Oa is recovering and plans to return to school.

Green's family told police that he had been suffering from mental illness for at least a year and had been prescribed medication.

"It's just awful. It doesn't seem real, to be honest with you, that my son was shot," Chris Merz, Oa's stepfather, told Collins.
