University of Baltimore Police Officer William Evans, age 45, died on Sunday, November 1 of a heart attack. He was playing a game of basketball prior to his passing.

Arriving at the University of Baltimore in 2019, Evans previously led a career with the Baltimore Police Department.

Many remember him as having a warm smile to the many students, faculty, and staff that he met on campus.

He was passionate about coaching youth basketball, and most notably, the team of his son.

“We are struck by William’s passing, not only because he was so young, but because he stood for something extraordinary during these uncertain times: Those who stay at their posts, who keep watch over us even in a pandemic, are the heroes of our time,” said President Schmoke, in an email to students. “We won’t forget the many sacrifices made by Officer Evans, his fellow men and women of the force, and by the maintenance staff and housekeepers who work at the UB campus every day. ”

The Sting will continue to keep readers updated as the story develops.
