STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ Friends of a University of Connecticut student killed by a campus shuttle bus are planning a vigil near the spot where he died.

The investigation continued Thursday into this week’s death of 20-year-old David Plamondon, an aspiring doctor who was active in a campus singing group and community service programs.

Plamondon  was a native of Westminster, Mass., and a semi-pro baseball player. He died Tuesday night when the shuttle bus struck him in a campus intersection.

UConn police say the investigation remains open and that no charges have been filed against the bus driver, described as a male student authorized to operate the vehicle.

A vigil in Plamondon’s memory is planned Thursday night near the intersection, and a memorial concert has been scheduled Friday night in the Student Union.
