A former University of Arizona student was killed while on vacation on a Greek island, according to several sources.

The Daily Mail reported Bakari Henderson was beat to death by at least 10 people following an argument at a bar in Zakynthos.

UA confirmed Henderson is a former student who graduated in May 2017, with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and an undergraduate certificate in Sports.

According to his Facebook page, Henderson is from Austin, Texas.

Statement from University of Arizona President Robert C. Robbins: 

All of us at the University of Arizona are shocked and saddened by the loss of our recent graduate, Bakari Henderson.
Our hearts and prayers are with his friends and family. I can only imagine the deep sense of loss they must be feeling at his untimely death. It is always a tragedy when a young life ends before it has really yet to begin.
Our staff in the Dean of Students office are reaching out to the faculty and staff across campus. We also are working with his student organizations and the affiliations he had on campus to offer support to those who knew Bakari.
I know I speak for the university community as I express deepest condolences to Bakari’s family and friends.

At least two people have been arrested on homicide charges, according to the Daily Mail.
