Brian Fraser was identified as one of the three Michigan State University students who was killed in the mass shooting on Monday. The other two are Arielle Anderson and Alexandria Verner.
Anthony McRae, a 43-year-old gunman, fired inside a building before killing himself when confronted by police.
Who was Brian Fraser?
Brian Fraser was from Grosse Pointe and was a sophomore studying business. He was the Chapter President of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity at MSU.
Fraser was also the chapter president of the Michigan Beta Chapter of Phi Delta Theta at Michigan State. Phi Delta Theta International Fraternity released a statement on Tuesday “As the leader of this chapter, Brian was a great friend to his Phi Delt brothers, the Greek community at Michigan State, and those others with whom he interacted on the campus.
“Brian was our leader, and we loved him,” a Phi Delta Theta wrote in an Instagram post.
“He cared deeply about his Phi Delt brothers, his family, Michigan State University and Phi Delta Theta. We will greatly miss Brian and mourn his death deeply as our chapter supports each other during this difficult time,” said Jon Dean, superintendent of the Grosse Pointe Public School System in the community post.
Fraser’s family was still in huge shock. His sister, Micaela Fraser said that their family isn’t willing to speak on the topic, but she doesn’t want her brother’s name to be forgotten. “He was light in their lives,” she said.
The other two victims that were killed in the shooting included Alexandria Verner from Clawson and Arielle Anderson of Harper Woods. Anderson is a 19-year-old sophomore. “She was a bright, aspiring and humble young lady,” said her maternal grandmother, April Davis. She aspired to become a pediatric doctor. She graduated from Grosse Pointe North High School.
Alexandria Verner from Clawson was a junior studying biology. She graduated from Clawson High School in 2020.
