One college football player is dead and three other athletes are charged with his murder as of yesterday.
Nineteen year old Ryan Brooks, along with three other athletes, attempted to break into a home near Faulkner University in Montgomery, Alabama.
According to local media:
An investigation by the Montgomery Police Department indicates the four students were attempting to break into a home in the 5900 block of Woodmere Boulevard to commit robbery around 7:35 p.m. Wednesday. While in the process of committing the robbery, police say their investigation shows Brooks was shot by the homeowner in self-defense. He was pronounced dead on the scene by responding medics.
Wall, Williams and Russell face the murder charge, despite not being the ones who pulled the trigger, because Brooks was killed during the commission of a robbery attempt in which they are suspects.
The three surviving suspects are all 19 years old and are identified as Marshall Wall, Ronnie Williams, and Tabias Russell.
Two of the suspects, along with Brooks, were football players and one was a soccer player for the university.
