      Basketball player killed during drive-by shooting

      A 17-year-old basketball player was shot Wednesday night in Muskegon Heights.

      Authorities say a 17-year-old high school basketball player has died following a drive-by shooting in the western Michigan community of Muskegon Heights.

      Police say they haven't identified a suspect in the death of Marquis Gresham. The Muskegon Chronicle reports that Gresham was a junior at Muskegon Heights Public School Academy and a starting center on the Tigers' varsity basketball team.

      Muskegon Heights police Chief Lynne Gill says Thursday that two people were taken into custody.

      Gill says there was a "sort of disturbance" before the Wednesday night shooting, but it's unclear whether Gresham was the intended target of the shooting. Witnesses reported that multiple shots were fired from a moving vehicle.

      The shooting is under investigation.
