Albany State Running Back Killed in Robbery
A star running back for Albany State University has been shot and killed after breaking into a house.
Albany police spokesman Lieutenant Kenn Singleton says 21 year old Antonio Atkins and another man are suspected of breaking into the house early yesterday morning.
Atkins would have begun his senior year at Albany State this fall.
Police say Atkins and the other man broke into the home of Johnathan Young, a barber at the Marine Corps Logistics Base-Albany. Young tells police he shot one man with a shotgun after the two entered the home's front door by force.
The home's other occupant, Michael R. Thomas, told police the men came into the house and tried to rob them.
