Former Texas Tech standout Andre Emmett killed in Dallas
DALLAS (AP) - Authorities say former Texas Tech basketball standout Andre Emmett has been shot to death near his home in Dallas.
Police say 37-year-old Emmett was sitting in his vehicle outside his home early Monday when he was approached by two people who displayed a handgun. Police say an altercation ensued and Emmett was shot as he ran away.
Police say the suspects fled and a passer-by called 911 after finding Emmett several hundred feet from his home.
Emmett died at a hospital.
Texas Tech says Emmett is the all-time leading scorer in program history with 2,256 career points from 2001-04. He averaged 17.6 points per game.
Texas Tech spokesman Wes Bloomquist said a university administrator has spoken to Emmett's family to confirm his death.
