Former Detroit HS football star injured in shooting near Washington State campus

PULLMAN, Wash. (WWJ) -- An investigation is underway after a former Detroit high school football star was shot at a party near the Washington State University campus early Saturday morning.

Authorities in Washington say Brandon Gray, a former standout for Cass Tech High school in Detroit, was taken to a hospital in Spokane by an air ambulance after being shot at the party. He was last said to be in serious but stable condition.

Another man, 23-year-old Liban Barre, was killed in the shooting, according to a report by the Seattle Times. Barre, of Kent, Washington, was not a student at the university.

Police were called to the scene for a noise complaint, and once they arrived, they heard several gunshots and found Gray and Barre with multiple gunshot wounds.

It was not entirely clear what led to the shooting, but police have arrested a 23-year-old man from Pullman in connection with the shooting.

Gray enrolled at WSU ahead of the 2018 season. The wide receiver was a top-20 prospect in the state of Michigan in the class of 2018. He has seen limited playing time for the Cougars during his college career.

It was not clear why Gray did not travel with the team for Saturday’s game at Utah.
