2 arrested in EMU football player’s shooting death
Question of the Day
YPSILANTI, MICH. (AP) - Police have arrested two people in the fatal shooting of Eastern Michigan University football player at an off-campus apartment complex, the Ypsilanti school announced Monday.
One suspect was arraigned Sunday and the other was being arraigned Monday in the slaying of Demarius Reed, the university said on its website. The Ypsilanti Police Department planned to release more information following the second arraignment.
The school didn’t identify the suspects, but court records obtained by MLive.com (http://bit.ly/18BZJZI) show that two 20-year-old Detroit men are charged with open counts of murder. Ed J. Thomas and Kristopher K. Pratt also face armed robbery and other charges, it said.
Thomas was in the Washtenaw County jail, and Pratt was jailed in neighboring Wayne County, MLive.com reported. It said Pratt also faces charges on accusations that he stole a man’s Air Jordan shoes, then fired a shot at him.
The Associated Press left a phone message Monday with the Washtenaw County prosecutor’s office seeking information on the charges, court proceedings and the suspects’ legal representation.
Reed was a 20-year-old communications major from Chicago and played six games this season, catching 15 passes for 185 yards. He starred as a receiver at Chicago’s Simeon Career Academy.
He was fatally shot multiple times Oct. 18 at an off-campus apartment building in Ypsilanti in what police have said was a possible robbery. University officials have said that they are hiring four more full-time police officers to support off-campus patrols.
