(AP) Police have identified the alleged home invader involved in the death of a New York college student early Friday morning.


Nassau County police on Saturday named 30-year-old Dalton Smith of Hempstead as the man who attempted to rob the off-campus home where Hofstra University junior Andrea Rebello was shot and killed.


Smith also died in what authorities have described as a police-involved shooting.


It still isn't clear who fired the fatal shots or how many rounds were fired in the 2:30 a.m. incident.


Police say Smith was on parole for robbery in the first degree and had an extensive criminal history that includes assault.


Authorities say a warrant for Dalton's arrest was issued last month for violating his parole.
