According to the Associated Press:

Brock Allison, the uncle of former Robinson High standout Desmond Allison who was shot to death in Columbus, Ohio, on Monday, asked the shooter to go to police while being interviewed by a TV station.

Meanwhile, Columbus police Sgt. Rich Weiner said no arrests have been made in Allison’s death and the wounding of another man, Malcolm Goff, outside an apartment complex.

Authorities said the men were shot multiple times around 4 p.m. Monday after becoming involved in an argument with several people. Allison, 31, died at a local hospital. Goff, 36, was treated and released.

Allison played at Kentucky from 1998-2000, averaging 8.9 points per game and 4.4 rebounds in his last game before being dismissed from the team after a DUI arrest.

Allison’s family has not set a date for the funeral, but it will be held in Tampa.
