A gunman shot and killed the son of a federal judge— a rising junior at the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C.— in New Jersey on Sunday night.
Daniel Anderl, 20, was a CUA student preparing to continue his studies at CUA in the fall, according to a July 20 letter from CUA president John Garvey.
According to family members, Daniel— the couple’s only child— was interested in following his parents into a legal career.
“Please join me and our entire campus community as we extend our deepest condolences to Daniel’s family and friends. May he rest in peace,” Garvey said, adding that the campus chaplain, Father Jude DeAngelo, will offer Mass the evening of July 20 for Anderl and his family.
Daniel’s father, Mark Anderl, also suffered multiple gunshot wounds and is recovering in hospital.
Anderl’s mother, Esther Salas, is a judge on the Federal District Court of New Jersey. The shooting incident occurred around 5pm on July 19 at the family’s home in Brunswick, New Jersey.
