A UTC student who was killed in earlier this year was honored during the university's graduation Saturday.

Mohammad Sharifi was shot and killed in February while trying to sell an Xbox.

A UTC spokesperson said he was on track to graduate this semester.

"Mohammad was a student in business management and was on track to receive his degree today," a UTC spokesperson said during the graduation.

His father, mother and wife received his diploma on his behalf.

D'Marcus White, the man charged in Sharifi's death, remains behind bars.
