MEMPHIS LINEMAN SHOT

New, 16 comments

Memphis Tigers defensive lineman Taylor Bradford was shot and killed by an unidentified gunman on the campus of the University of Memphis around 10:00 p.m. Sunday night, according to WREG-TV in Memphis.

Bradford was returning with friends to his apartment to get his keys, according to witnesses, when the gunman shot Bradford. Bradford was taken to a local hospital shortly afterwards, and died later that night.

The shooting took place at an apartment complex owned and operated by the University of Memphis. We wish there were other details here, but there's not much at this point--just an incident so violent and random even WREG's headline pops with a totally genuine exclamation point.
