Fourth Suspect Now Charged in Memphis Football Player's Death

MEMPHIS, TN - A fourth suspect has been arrested in the shooting death of a University of Memphis football player.

City police last night charged 21-year-old Devin Jefferson with hatching a plot to rob Taylor Bradford after rumors circulated that Bradford had won money at a casino.

Authorities say Jefferson is a U of M student and there was bad blood between him and Bradford.

The arrest of three other men had been announced earlier yesterday.  They are DaeShawn Tate, Victor Trezevant, and Courtney Washington.  All are from Memphis and none of them are students.

Police believe what was conceived as a robbery was botched on the night of September 30 and Bradford was shot.

Police Director Larry Godwin says Bradford had money in his pocket when his body was found.
