Man Charged In Slaying Of Prep Basketball Star

Posted: Updated:
MUSKEGON, Mich. (AP) - A man has been charged in the fatal shooting of a western Michigan high school basketball player.

Shundarius Lawson was arraigned Wednesday in Muskegon District Court on an open murder charge. Bond for the 20-year-old was set at $1 million.

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. Authorities haven't said if he fired the shots.

The prosecutor's office says Lawson has no lawyer on record.

Hilson says the investigation continues and others could be charged.

Gresham was a junior and starting center on the Muskegon Heights Public School Academy team that advanced to the state semifinals. Authorities say he was heading to an end-of-season basketball banquet when he was shot.
