MCDONOUGH, Ga. (AP) — Former Tulane University basketball player Teshaun Hightower has been charged with murder and other counts in Georgia. A police official tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the 22-year-old is one of six people wanted in connection with the April 8 killing of Devante Anthony Long, who died from gunshot wounds after he was taken to a hospital.

Hightower said he was entering the NBA draft pool on April 18, just 10 days after Long’s death. Hightower has been kicked off the Tulane team.
