Former College Basketball Player Killed In Shooting

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Columbus police say former University of Kentucky basketball player Desmond Allison was killed and another man was wounded in a shooting outside an apartment complex in Northeast Columbus.

Authorities say the two were shot multiple times at around 4 p.m. Monday after they became involved in an argument with several people. They were taken to a local hospital where Allison, 31, died of his injuries and Malcolm Goff, 36, was treated and released.

Allison played at the University of Kentucky from 1998-2000. In his last season he averaged 8.9 points per game and 4.4 rebounds.

Police say they have no suspects and are continuing their investigation.
