Univ. of Memphis Athlete Shot and Killed

Authorities say a University of Memphis football player was fatally shot overnight on campus.

Police found his body in his car a short distance from campus after the vehicle hit a tree.

Officers then found a bullet wound to Bradford's chest.

The shooting occurred late on Sept. 30 and a university spokesman says residence halls were locked down until police determined the shooting was likely personal.

There have been no arrests.

Classes were canceled Oct. 1 at the University of Memphis.
