The statement went on to say Henderson enjoyed spending time with friends and family as well as traveling and meeting new people.
Tyler Pittman, another of Henderson's friends, said: 'I guess I'll never meet someone as inspirational and influential as that man. He loved life and lived it to the fullest. Eight people have been arrested in the attack. Further details on the clash were not immediately clear, but police said it involved two groups of people. "We offer our sincerest condolences to family".
The school also put out a statement, "All of us at the University of Arizona are shocked and saddened by the loss of our recent graduate, Bakari Henderson. We would like to thank our family, friends and the Austin community for your prayers, love and support". "The loss of our recent University of Arizona graduate is truly tragic and shocking, and I offer my deepest condolences to all who knew him".
