Nick Anthony Donofrio, a junior at the University of South Carolina, had his life abruptly end in the early hours of a Saturday morning. The 20-year-old was discovered shot in the upper body and dead on the front porch of a home off-campus on South Holly Street. The locals think back on the young man who had a bright future as they mourn his passing.

Nick Donofrio, who was he?

The journey of Nicholas Donofrio was one of potential and aspiration. According to his LinkedIn profile, he is a junior at the University of South Carolina studying exercise science. After spending her freshman year playing basketball at the University of New England in Biddeford, Maine, the Connecticut native transferred to the university in 2022. His academic accomplishments were recognized by his graduation from Daniel Hand High School in Madison, Connecticut.

Nick had a strong desire to learn, which led him to choose Kinesiology and Exercise Science as his major. He was a member of the Phi Kappa Sigma fraternity and was eager to form long-lasting relationships. On South Holly Street, the street where his life was taken, he had moved into a frat house. This new phase of his life was made more exciting by the thought of sharing his college experience with friends.

The circumstances of Nick Donofrio’s death have left his community in search of explanations. When law enforcement first received a report of a home invasion, they quickly learned about a deeper tragedy—a young life lost as a result of a gunshot wound. According to early information, Donofrio—who lived on the same street—accidentally entered the wrong house. An unfortunate entry resulted in a deadly confrontation.

Nick’s loved ones are still feeling the effects of his loss very strongly. Dina and Louis Donofrio, his parents, remember him as their son. Nick, who was a committed basketball player during his first year at the University of New England, entered a new stage in his academic and personal development when he transferred to the University of South Carolina.

The University of South Carolina has offered resources to help those who have been affected by this loss cope with the tragedy.
