Former Student-Athletes from New Hampshire College Tragically Killed in Miami Shooting

The school revealed on Monday that the two young women who were shot and killed by one of their partners in a murder-suicide in Miami, Florida, were former student-athletes at New England College in New Hampshire.

The victims of the horrific gunshots were identified by Miami-Dade Police as 25-year-old Meghan Moore and 23-year-old Sidney Capolino. New England College verified to Boston 25 News that the women were recent graduates.

According to the police report, Moore and Capolino lived in an apartment building on South West 40th Street where the shooting occurred on Saturday just before nine o’clock at night.

Authorities reported that as they were attempting to assist Moore, the lady they had discovered outside the apartment with a gunshot wound, they heard another gunshot from inside the flat, forcing them to flee the structure.

When police arrived inside, they found a guy who appeared to have shot himself and another lady who had been shot and was identified as Capolino.

Luis Napoles, 40, allegedly arrived at the apartment complex and shot Moore outside of the house, according to the police investigation. After going into the apartment, he shot Capolino, her roommate, and then killed himself.

Student-athlete biographies state that Moore was originally from Centerville, Massachusetts, and Capolino was from Pawling, New York. The women’s ice hockey squad had both players, according to school administrators.

President Wayne Lesperance remarked, “Meghan and Sidney were known to many on campus, and we are deeply saddened by this devastating news. We are keeping Sidney and Meghan’s families and friends in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.”

“As we pause to process the gravity of the event, it is important that we support and care for each other. If you need support, counseling services are available at the NEC Wellness Center. While it is Spring Break the next two weeks and many of you are not here on campus, please know that our staff are here for you and able to support you,” President Lesperance stated in his statement.

As of right now, no further details have been disclosed.
