Brant Daniels, 19, a former Fresno State student who loved basketball was killed at the University Village apartment complex when a confrontation over a video game ended in gunfire.
Narvin Barring, a sophomore health science major said he was a friend of the victim. Barring said the two had met at a basketball tournament and then again at the Student Recreation Center where they frequently played basketball. Barring also said they went to parties together.
â€œWe werenâ€™t sure it was him at first,â€? Barring said. He said a friend had contacted him around 8 a.m. and that he and his brother then called another friend to confirm the news. Barring said he has been trying to contact friends of Danielsâ€™ family.
According to Barring, Daniels was, â€œjust the kind of guy who would make you laugh all the time.â€?
Police were still searching for the suspect late Tuesday morning.
