Authorities were dispatched to the area around 1:45 a.m., and a driver of a vehicle told responding officers that the suspects fired at his car, killing Harris, according to the station. The driver told officers that he returned fire and thought he had hit one of the suspects.

The station reported that one of the suspects sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

Authorities said it appeared the shooting was the result of a minor argument between the suspects and the victims.

Miles was fired from the men’s basketball team after it was revealed that he was allegedly involved in the shooting. The previous Saturday, he was ruled out for the rest of the season with an ankle injury.
