Arrest Made In UNH Footballer Shooting

((HT: MyFoxBoston))

Police in Colorado have arrested Kevin Michael McGregor in the shooting of University of New Hampshire football player Todd Walker. McGregor faces multiple felony charges including Murder in the First Degree and Aggravated Robbery.

Walker, of Edwards, Colo., was shot around 2 a.m. in the University Hill neighborhood near the University of Colorado campus in Boulder, according to local police. Walker and a woman were, apparently, walking home after going to parties in the area when they were approached by a man wearing a black bandanna over his face.

Police say that man, McGregor, shot Walker after an argument. The woman with Walker was able to pull the bandanna off McGregor's face. McGregor, allegedly, then fired two shots- one in Walker's chest.

Walker was pronounced dead at a local hospital. His father was told by local investigators that Todd stepped in front of the woman he was with and took the bullet at point-blank range.

Walker was a sophomore in the University of New Hampshire's school of business and economics and was in Colorado on spring break, according to the school.
