YPSILANTI, Mich. -- Eastern Michigan University football player Demarius Reed was found dead early Friday and authorities have launched an off-campus homicide investigation.
Ypsilanti Police Sgt. Thomas Eberts told the Ann Arbor News that a man's body was found in the hallway of an apartment complex about 7:15 a.m. EDT by his roommate. The victim appeared to have been shot to death.
The football team's website listed Reed as a junior from Chicago. The 5-foot-10-inch, 161-pound wide receiver played in six games this season, catching 15 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown.
He made 18 receptions for 171 yards in nine games last season.
The school says in a release that grief counselors are meeting Friday with members of the football team. Saturday's home game against Ohio University still is scheduled.
