The 22-year-old woman ambushed in a deadly knife attack Saturday at the Winchester Public Library was fondly remembered as a "passionate" medical student who fought for awareness in issues like domestic violence and mental illness, officials at her university said. A 77-year-old was also injured after he tried to save the woman from the vicious unprovoked attack.

Authorities have opened an investigation into the attack and were working to determine a motive, a news release from the district attorney's office said.

The identity of the female victim is being withheld at this time pending next of kin notification.
