A Northern Illinois University student from suburban Chicago was shot and killed early Wednesday after getting into an argument with another man at a party being thrown in an off-campus apartment.

Steven R. Agee II, 22, of south suburban Park Forest, Ill., was shot in the 800 block of Edgebrook Drive in DeKalb, about a mile north of campus, just after 2 a.m. Wednesday, ABC Chicago reports.

Chaz Thrailkill, 19, of Markham, was arrested late Wednesday morning and charged with first-degree murder, aggravated battery with a firearm and aggravated discharge of a firearm in the fatal shooting. He is being held on a $3 million bond, NBC Chicago reports.

Police arrived at the scene within a minute of a 911 call being placed and the student was found with a gunshot wound to his chest, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. He was taken to Kishwaukee Hospital in critical condition and pronounced dead there shortly thereafter. He had been shot three times.

Detectives say the party was attended by dozens of people, including many NIU students, according to the <I>Sun-Times</I>.

The student's father, Steven Agee Sr., told the Chicago Tribune Wednesday he had "just lost his baby boy. That's it." His son was majoring in sociology at NIU, had a job offer lined up in San Diego after his upcoming graduation and was planning to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with his parents.

"And now there will be no more holidays with him, not even this one coming now," Agee told the Tribune.

The shooting prompted the university to issue an alert announcing the tragic news.

Though they originally instructed students to remain indoors, university later reported that "there is no imminent threat to the community" and that the shooting was "an isolated incident that occurred as the result of an argument that escalated between two people at a party."

The suspected shooter fled the scene after the shooting, ABC reports.
