A 20-year-old Linfield College football player died after being stabbed Saturday night, according to authorities.

The incident occurred outside a 7-Eleven near campus Saturday night.

The victim suffered multiple stab wounds and was airlifted to Oregon Health and Science University Hospital in Portland, where he died of his injuries. The college identified him as Parker Moore, a business administration major, resident adviser and a member of the football team.

The suspect allegedly returned to the scene of the crime and confronted officers, who fatally shot him. The Yamhill County Sheriff's Office identified the suspect as Joventino Bermudez Arenas, 33, of McMinnville. 

Their autopsies are scheduled to begin Monday at the State Medical Examiner's Office.

"There is an ongoing investigation by the Yamhill County Major Crimes Response Team and the college is cooperating fully," stated Linfield College President Thomas L. Hellie, on the school's website.

Linfield, a college with less than 2,000 undergraduates, will make counselors available to its students Monday.

"We are all still in shock, but we know that it is important to speak to counselors, to support each other as we mourn, and to think about and pray for Parker’s family and friends," Hellie stated. "We have lost a valued, important member of our community and all of us share in the grief."
