MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- A Muskegon Heights Academy basketball player was shot and killed Wednesday evening on his way to the team's banquet, police said.
Around 6:15 p.m., Marquis Gresham and a group of friends were walking along 5th Street, on their way to the banquet, when witnesses say someone inside a burgundy SUV fired four shots.
Yolanda Tate tried to perform CPR on Gresham. " I heard four gunshots. I was in my house. Pow, pow, pow. Real fast."
Tate says she didn't see the gunmen fire, but she did see the Burgundy SUV race away, "When he got hit, he ran that way, and he dropped right there." Tate says she did try to perform CPR but she couldn't get in and do anything. "My husband was actually down on the ground with him." Said Tate. "He was telling him to hang in there, hang in there police is on the way. He just looked up at my husband and then closed his eyes."
