UNIONDALE - Long Islanders are worried about safety surrounding Hofstra's campus following a home invasion and shooting early Friday.
The topic of security on and off campus reignited after police say 30-year-old Dalton Smith entered a California Avenue home in a ski mask and armed with a gun. Dalton and one of the home's residents, Hofstra junior Andrea Rebello, were killed when an officer opened fire.
Some students living on California Avenue say they're rethinking housing following the deadly home invasion.
The director for Hofstra's Department of Public Safety tells Newsday there are 59 licensed security guards constantly patrolling Hofstra's 240-acre jurisdiction.
