Boston University graduate student Lingzi Lu was one of the three people killed in the bombings at the Boston Marathon.
An earlier statement says the student was with two friends who were watching the race at the finish line, not far from the university's campus. One of the friends, also a grad student at the university, was injured and is at Boston Medical Center in stable condition.
Lu was studying mathematics and statistics, the university said in a statement Wednesday afternoon.
More than 170 people were injured.
