Charges Filed Against Man that Fatally Shot MATC Basketball Player

Charges were filed today against 28-year-old Amontre Ross.

The complaint says Ross and the victim, D'andre Morehouse were life-long friends.

Another friend who witnessed the murder said Ross had been acting paranoid and making bizarre statements.

He said the three friends were all hanging out when Ross grabbed a gun and began shooting.

Morehouse played for the MATC’s basketball team.

CBS 58 spoke exclusively to his teammates last week.

"The news really tore me up. Nobody wakes up in the morning, and plans on a friend, brother, teammate, being murdered on game day,” said his teammate.

Ross's bail was set at $200,000.

If convicted he faces up to 60 years in prison.
