A man has been charged in the fatal shooting of a western Michigan high school basketball player.
Shundarius Lawson faces arraignment today on an open murder charge. The 20-year-old Muskegon resident also faces a charge of being a second-time habitual offender. Bond was denied.
Muskegon County Prosecutor D.J. Hilson says Lawson was in a sport utility vehicle from which the shots were fired that killed 17-year-old Marquis Gresham on April 23. The prosecutor’s office says Wednesday morning Lawson had no lawyer on record.
According to Hilson, the investigation is continuing, and more charges against others are possible.
Gresham was a junior and a starting center on the Muskegon Heights Public School Academy team that advanced to the state semifinals.
Hilson calls his death “just a tragedy all the way around.”
