Two men have been charged in the shooting death of a former Chicago high school football standout, police said on Monday.
It has been a month since a 20-year-old college student from Chicago was killed in Ypsilanti, Michigan – and the family says they’re encouraged that police may have some leads, reports WBBM’s Steve Miller.
Demarius Reed was a starter for Eastern Michigan University. His body was found in his off-campus last Friday.
Officers say the two are responsible for the shooting that killed 17 year-old Tyrone Lawson, a Morgan Park High School student who was preparing to leave Wednesday’s game between his school and Simeon High School.
Police responded to a report of shots fired at Gately Stadium, but apparently it was a fight that caused spectators to flee.
