Former Notre Dame and current University of Alabama at Birmingham running back Greg Bryant is dead after being fatally shot while driving down I-95 in West Palm Beach, Florida.
"We are trying to find answers," [said Grandmother Annette Kelly]. "Someone is going to have to give us answers because he was just getting ready to go back to college tomorrow. He just came home for the weekend to be with his grandmother and mother, and a coward killed my baby."
Investigators are seeking witnesses to the shooting. His family says Bryant was heading back home from Sugar Daddy's when he was shot in the head.
"I heard a car followed him and rolled up on the side of him and started shooting," said Step-Grandfather, Sam Kelly.
Bryant joined the Blazers in January in preparation for the school's return to football this fall. Ohio State receiver Johnnie Dixon, also a former Miami high school star, tweeted out his condolences on Sunday afternoon:
