Prosecutor: Slain prep player ‘innocent bystander’
Question of the Day
MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. (AP) - A 17-year-old high school basketball player who led his team to the state semifinals this past season was not the intended target of a drive-by shooting that killed him, a prosecutor said Tuesday.
Marquis Gresham is believed to have been an innocent bystander when he was shot while walking to a basketball banquet at Muskegon High School, according to the Muskegon Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1fMEFFo ).
“It does appear from the investigation that Gresham was not the target, that he was standing in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Chief Assistant Muskegon County Prosecutor Timothy Maat said Tuesday.
Gresham was with a group of friends when he was shot in the chest April 23 about a mile from the high school. Multiple shots were fired from an SUV, police said.
Gresham, a junior, was the starting center on the Muskegon Heights High School team.
Two men have been charged with murder in Gresham’s death.
Ryheim Beasley, 19, was arraigned Monday and ordered held on a $2 million bond. He faces a May 19 preliminary examination.
Shundarius Lawson, 20, was arraigned last week. His bond was set at $1 million.
The Associated Press left a voicemail Tuesday with the Muskegon County prosecutor’s office seeking the names of attorneys representing Beasley and Lawson.
