MEMPHIS, TN - Authorities do not believe students at the University of Memphis are in danger despite the shooting death of a Tiger football player on campus.
Taylor Bradford of Nashville apparently was shot near a university housing complex about 9:45 p.m. Sunday and then crashed a car he was driving into a tree a short distance away.
Officers said witnesses saw two unidentified men running from the area where investigators believe the shooting occured and other witnesses reported hearing gunfire.
A motive for the shooting has not been determined and police have no suspects identified.
The football team hosts Marshall tonight, and a moment of silence is planned before the game at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. Head coach Tommy West said Bradford was well respected and a popular member of the team.
Investigators said they had no evidence that Bradford was involved in illegal activity or brought the attack on himself.
