Former A-Sun Star Killed In Shooting

Officials in DeKalb County ((suburban Atlanta, Georgia)) say Shuan Stegall, a top scorer and rebounder on Kennesaw State University's basketball team a few years ago, has been shot to death at his father's home.

DeKalb police spokeswoman Mekka Parish says the 25-year-old tried to intervene in a dispute between his father, Gerald Stegall Sr., and two other men on Saturday and was shot repeatedly. Parish says the younger Stegall was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Stegall averaged 13 points and seven rebounds a game in 78 games for the Owls from 2004-08. He led the team in rebounds in his last two seasons.

Stegall played professionally in England for the Cheshire Jets and then in Syria for Al Ittihad Aleppo.

Parish says the suspects in the shooting remain at large.
