Edison (Fresno, Calif.) defensive back Marquis Sutton was shot and killed Monday night while walking near a busy intersection in Central Fresno.
The shooting occured at around 7 p.m., not long after Sutton had practiced with Edison.
"I just left that kid after practice at 6:30 p.m.,” Edison football coach Ricky Manning Jr. told the station.”And I got this news before I made it home. This is devastating for our team and our community."
Edison planned on having grief counselors available on Tuesday.
"He doesn't bother anyone,” Sutton’s brother, Vincent Andrews, told KFSN-TV Action News in Fresno. “He just plays football for Edison High School. I don't know what happened. This is senseless."
On Tuesday afternoon, the station reported that an arrest had been made in the shooting.

Just three months ago, Tilton (Tilton, N.H.) scoring guard Wayne Selden made the same move from 2014 back to his original Class of 2013.

Ohio State, North Carolina, Indiana and Kansas, among others, are all in hot pursuit of Vonleh, who plans to take the SAT in October.
